Venue: Golitsyn Hall in the Golitsyn Loft (20, Fontanka river embankment, St. Petersburg)

During the month of March 2019, the ENERPO Research Center at the European University of St. Petersburg organizes a Series of Open Lectures — "THE MONTH OF ENERGY".

Russia and its four Caspian neighbors signed a Convention on the Legal Status of the Caspian Sea in 2018, yet the important matter of extracting and transporting oil and gas from the Caspian will remain to be settled in the future. The lecture on March 27, 2019, will expose the politics of energy that link Russia and its neighbors in the Caspian, as well as future prospects in the region.

International students and young professionals (but not only!) are welcome to join a series of open lectures on the theme of Energies in Russia: each Wednesday during the month of March, a key speaker will give you an interactive lecture and tell more about energy politics in Russia and Eurasia. Since climate takes growing importance in our everyday lives, we decided to dedicate two lectures to the issues of sustainable development in Russia, renewable energy and green economy. You would be surprised to learn how much potential there is in the country, and to realize how political this topic can be!   

Special plus: Energy is a fun and trendy topic, and because we want these lectures to be as interesting as possible, after each lecture there will be time for discussion and networking. Our (very nice) team will be present and ready to chat with you or answer your questions relative to the content of the lectures, the school, etc. Snacks will also be waiting for you!



By attending at least 2 lectures of the Month of Energy, you will receive a Certificate of “Participation in the interactive course: current challenges of Russian energy politics”.
