We live in an era marked by innovative scientific discoveries - an era driven by technological advancements, dominated by electronic devices, and transformed by the power of the internet - which has reshaped the world into a small global community.
Every day we hear about the wonders of new inventions and scientific discoveries that previously seemed beyond our imagination. Progression in fields such as genetic engineering has given us new and effective treatments for many diseases that until very recently lacked any cure.
There is no doubt that this outburst of invention has a positive impact on our daily lives. Advancements in science, engineering, technology, and mathematics have refashioned the way we live.
This progress is the main driver of societal change as it influences our methods of transportation and the way in which we communicate. The advent of inventions such as the television, the mobile phone and satellite navigation, has forever changed the way we operate. And as information technology continues its rapid development, daily breakthroughs continue to enable us to store and access vast amounts of information at the mere click of a button.
However without energy, none of these discoveries and inventions would have been possible.
Energy sustains life. It provides us with food and water, powers our cities and drives progress and inventions. Today, the world’s population is rising, cities are growing, and living standards are improving, thus the demand for energy is increasing.
By 2050 the earth will need to support two billion more people. That means by 2030, we are going to need 40 per cent more energy than we currently use, but how can we achieve this? Our challenge is to find more and cleaner sources of energy, and become more efficient at using it.
And who is going to make this possible? That’s going to take brilliant minds - creative people to think and act.
To explore the possibilities of the future of energy, you together with your family and friends are invited to join ‘Energy World Qatar 2015’ on an exciting journey of Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) and for the first time in Qatar.
‘Energy World Qatar 2015’ will be held at the Doha Exhibition and Convention Centre, from the 19th – 28th of November. Delivered in partnership with Qatar Petroleum and Qatar Shell, and in association with the Qatar Tourism Authority, this exciting adventure aims to inspire a new generation of engineers, technologists, innovators in Qatar to contribute to the energy solutions of tomorrow.
