Let the young voices be heard

It’s obvious: tomorrow’s leaders are young people today. Come experience our inspiring Young venue giving updates from the energy industry and a very own lounge and hang-out space.

The oil and gas industry is in a constant state of development. New forms of energy require new technologies. Demands for cost reduction lead to new solutions. World energy consumption is increasing with greater competition for resources. How can we provide enough energy to the people of the world without damaging the environment?

The industry needs young energy
In order to solve these challenges, the industry needs young people with fresh approaches and a sharp, critical eye on established practices. What the industry needs is quite simply new energy, in the form of young people.

The idea behind ONS Young is to

    • Show and promote the diversity of the energy industry
    • Create an important meeting place for the next generation in the industry
    • Inspire young people to choose an education within science
    • Promote career opportunities in the energy industry
    • Give the young professionals in the industry a valuable network arena
    • Create an arena for dialog and discussion
    • Bring the young voice forward

For many young people ONS is their first meeting with a new employer, or their next step in an oil and gas education.

We hope to see you at ONS Young!
