Coming from all countries of the world bringing their visions and ideas to participate in the Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (Cop 27), they are young Egyptians studying abroad and specialized in environmental fields, renewable energy and green hydrogen.
Young people, in the presence of Ambassador Soha Gendy, Minister of State for Immigration and Egyptians Abroad Affairs, will participate in the activities of the session “Towards Zero Carbon Emissions” tomorrow, Thursday, at 1:00 pm in the Green Zone, within the sessions of the twenty-seventh Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change “Climate Conference.” Cop 27, to submit their proposals to the concerned authorities, in order to achieve the strategy of the Ministry of Immigration in linking Egyptians abroad with what Egypt is witnessing in terms of activities and development plans.
For her part, Ambassador Suha Gendi indicated that the discussion session will discuss reducing the effects of carbon dioxide in factories, capturing it and storing it, adding that the experience of linking digital transformation technologies to confront climate changes will be reviewed, as well as studying the reactions resulting from these changes and their repercussions on the world. In addition to presenting innovative solutions and applying them in Egypt, in addition to discussing renewable energy sources and their future in Egypt, as well as proposing ways to benefit from our natural wealth of wind, sun, and other clean energy sources.
And the Minister of Immigration added, “We are keen to transfer the experiences of Egyptians abroad and support their communication with the ministries and institutions of the Egyptian state in the fields of energy, including hydrogen projects, green ammonia, and enabling sustainable energy uses to support the goals of climate neutrality and clean energy production, to meet the needs of the Egyptian state.”
The Minister of Immigration added that our scholars and researchers abroad spare no effort in providing their knowledge and expertise in supporting various issues, stressing that the Ministry is keen to support young people in various scientific and research fields, in implementation of the directives of the political leadership to empower youth and enhance their capabilities, explaining that today’s youth are the builders of tomorrow, and that We have a scientific wealth abroad that we are working hard to invest and transfer their expertise, which adds to our soft power, and contributes to the transfer of experience and knowledge that we need to localize industries.
