Energy Mission 2020: Online event

Due to the ongoing corona crisis, we unfortunately had to take the regrettable decision to cancel the Energy Mission 2020 conference, which was planned in Genk on 3 & 4 December 2020. This physical event will be rescheduled to October 21 and 22, 2021.

The need to build a more sustainable and resilient future has never been greater than now. That is why we will organize a strong online event on December 3, 2020.


   Online event   

We have worked hard with all the partners to find a suitable online platform.
On December 3, 2020, the date on which the conference was normally planned in Genk (Belgium), we will organize an online forum from 11 am to 12 pm and between 1 pm and 2 pm.
