Recapping the SEforALL Charrettes

From 18thto 20thof June SEforALL Charrettes happened in Amsterdam, with the purpose of generate new ideas for achieving Sustainable Development Goal 7 (SDG 7 ) for access to clean, affordable, reliable and sustainable energy for all by 2030.


The SEforALL Charrettes were not a typical conference or workshop. Instead, a purposeful list of participants from diverse backgrounds was invited to participate in intensive, two-day interactive sessions, with each charrette focused on a different issue on the critical path to delivering SDG7.


During the two days of design-thinking sessions, participants were forced out of their comfort zone, needing to reconcile diverging views and specializations for the sake of converging on the most impactful solutions.


During the event’s opening session, Rachel Kyte, CEO and Special Representative of UN Secretary-General for Sustainable Energy for All gave a clear message to all participants: “We can’t keep on having the same conversation amongst the same people asking the same questions and expecting something transformative to happen. You are here for a reason.”
