This event brings together various international groups within SPE to host over a week of innovation, collaboration and networking, all with a focus on supporting the future of the industry and those who will make that future possible.


The event will consist of an “Ideathon” encouraging teams of YPs from around the world to work on the biggest challenges facing the industry. Teams will have a week to collaborate and showcase their ideas. During that week we will also host a series of webinars and training sessions to explore key topics, share best practices and give essential skills.




YPs from all over the world are invited to participate in our Ideathon. Selected participants will be put into groups and have one week to develop feasible solutions to sustainability challenges facing our industry which will be presented to a panel of sustainability experts.
