Young people are key agents for social change, economic growth, environmental protection and technological innovation.

As countries across the world continue to take bold steps towards decarbonizing their energy systems, the need to include youth in the energy transformation is becoming increasingly clear.

Today's youth will lead the sustainable development agenda of tomorrow.

It will be incumbent upon them to inject renewed momentum into the global energy and development discourse, and it is therefore only fit that they have a seat at the table.

How to write a scientific paper

This brief manual by Mike Ashby, Granta Design, gives guidance in writing a paper about your research. Most of the advice applies equally to your thesis or to writing a research proposal. The content of the paper reflects the kind of work you have done: experimental, theoretical, computational. He has used, as a model, a typical Materials project: one combining experiment with modeling and computation to explain some aspect of material behaviour.
