SDG7 Academy in Panama

Last updated: 2 August 2023

Panama’s Ministry of Energy allied with the Friedrich Ebert Foundation to create a virtual school focused on the clean energy transition, where young people can attend courses delivered by experts in the field of energy. Based on Sustainable Development Goal 7 “Affordable and clean energy for all”, the objective is to educate and motivate young Panamanians who are about to enter the labour market, to work for a just, inclusive and equitable energy transition. Launched in May 2021, the first online course offered aimed at developing skills in different fields related to energy, such as geopolitics, policy and regulation, communication, innovation and leadership, and strengthening awareness on gender equity, sustainability and social transformation. Already, 22 young people have attended this course and the goal is to continue training more people in the coming years.
