International, youth-run non-profit organisation AIESEC launched yesterday the first version of its “Ebtikar” programme, which is to be held until August 31. The programme is being held under the patronage of Sustainable Energy Authority (SEA) president Dr Abdulhussain bin Ali Mirza.

It aims to spread awareness about climate change and renewable energy among youth aged 17 to 25 years old from both genders, who will compete in teams and be evaluated by sustainable energy specialists, through a competitive atmosphere to find solutions to the issues given to them.

Dr Mirza praised AIESEC’s role and efforts in developing youth and directing their skills to sustainable contributions for a better future. He also noted the success of the National Renewable Energy Plan and the National Energy Efficiency Plan. AIESEC Bahrain head Ahmed Shabir expressed his thanks and appreciation to Dr Mirza for his support of their efforts to achieve national goals of renewable energy and energy efficiency.
