In November, Heather Backstrom (Stakeholder Specialist Social Value) from Cadent Gas participated in the Hynet for the Next Generation Youth Webinar. Other Guest speakers included Professor Joe Howe, University of Chester, Chris Manson Whitton (Director at Progressive Energy), Joe Ward (Senior Project Development Engineer Progressive Energy), Adele Upton (Project Engineer Progressive Energy), and Jack Walden (Project Engineer Progressive Energy). Over twenty-two young people attended the event. 

The event focused on the following themes:

  • What is Hydrogen?
  • Why are we Capturing Carbon?
  • Low Carbon Careers.

The webinar allowed young people to participate in live polls during the webinar, with one poll revealing that 94% of young people are interested in green skills/careers, in addition to a Live Q and A session at the end.
