Students For Sustainable Energy For All (SSEA)


Students for Sustainable Energy for All (SSEA) is a network comprised of various students across multiple universities around the globe, all of whom share the same values as Global Energy Initiative and are interested in learning more about the field of sustainable energy. The network acts as a platform for developing globally-minded leaders who will ensure the energy sustainability of future generations and the health of our planet. We encourage and support students to actively engage in these omnipresent world issues by joining or forming an SSEA Chapter at their respective universities.  

Through their SSEA Chapter, students will promote energy awareness by engaging peers on the current global environmental/energy issues and by organizing campus-wide events such as workshops, panel discussions, debates, speaker series and conferences. As a division of Global Energy Initiative, all SSEA Chapters must compliment GEI's mission of promoting sustainable energy for all, through making efforts to fight energy poverty, protect the environment, and mitigate the effects of climate change. Given that Global Energy Initiative adheres to the broader principles and guidelines adopted by the United Nations for achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and 2014-2024 Decade of Sustainable Energy for All, any SSEA Chapters must also adhere to these principles.

Active members of our SSEA, University of Calabar, Nigeria - Chapter.  Their Chapter, carried out a grand-scale event in a project they dubbed, "iCare4ME" ("I Care For Mother Earth"), the highlight of which involved outreach and education of environmental concerns to thousands of Nigerians who were gathering outside of U. J. Esuene Stadium to commemorate the 53rd anniversary of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

Joining the SSEA network offers a great opportunity to all student members to access a vast array of resources, not-for-profit organizations, energy field professionals, and other student organizations around the world, all through the full support of Global Energy Initiative. Such resources and support are invaluable in any student's long-term career goals and allow for unique insight into the field of notprofit work and coordination. SSEA Chapters are critical to the success of Global Energy Initiative's mission, because the youth of our planet is critical to the success of its future.
