WGSI Blog

Generation SDG is the fourth Summit hosted by Waterloo Global Science Initiative. WGSI brings together brilliant minds and unheard voices from different disciplines, generations, and geographies to address the pressing challenges of tomorrow — today. 

The cornerstone conversation is our Summit Series hosted in Waterloo, Ontario, Canada  every two years. We believe in the importance of creating a level playing field where people can think outside the box.

OUR LATEST PUBLICATION

The result of a multinational, multidisciplinary and multigenerational collaboration between energy sector actors, the OpenAccess Energy Blueprint provides:

  • insight into proactive governance, creating a fair marketplace, empowering people, and effective entrepreneurship for energy access;
  • Solutions Spotlights featuring innovative technologies, business and finance models; 
  • a commitment to establishing and nurturing such partnerships on the road to establishing energy access.
