About WEF Outreach 2020-1

WEF Outreach Film Series

To complement our webinars and to help maintain continuity during the COVID-19 hiatus for the community of policymakers, public bodies, industry, investors and NGOs with whom we work the WEF produced 40 short films on key energy and climate issues that reached over 5000 key stakeholders. The purpose was to:

1.  Demonstrate the resilience of the sector at this time, and to address emerging concerns raised by regularly exploring key issues and themes in the programmes.

2.   Maintain confidence in the sector - and each other - by providing insights into key areas of common interest and showing the sector’s momentum.

3.   Show how the sector’s adaptability to the broad range of critical energy, climate and sustainability issues at this critical time is keeping the 2030 and 2050 goals alive.

Most recently, in an interview from the beginning of the year with the WEF the Secretary of State for BEIS, Rt. Hon. Kwasi Kwarteng MP looks forward to “a year of delivery” in 2021, following the publication of the Energy White Paper. The SoS was interviewed by Chris Lambert, Director of the WEF to explain some of the Ministerial thinking behind the White Paper and provide further background on the Government’s strategy for reaching net zero by 2050.
