Asia Clean Energy Forum 2017


The Asia Clean Energy Forum is the premier knowledge-sharing event for staying updated with the latest developments and key issues in Asia’s clean energy sector. Each June, clean energy professionals convene at ADB Headquarters to network, discuss issues, exchange knowledge, and build business. In 2017, we’re celebrating the 12th anniversary of the Forum. Join us for this special occasion.

To meaningfully engage young people across Asia and the Pacific in the ACEF, ADB Youth for Asia invites youth to join the Clean Energy Forum. We will select 15 youth across different country with different background. 

If you are interested to participate as an individual, we are looking for students, young professionals, young researchers, civil society representatives, and volunteers from various backgrounds and experiences in the clean energy sector. This is a great opportunity to network with stakeholders around the region, and to stay updated with the latest developments and key issues in Asia’s clean energy sector
