Energy, sustainable development, and youth engagement are Rind Alhage’s main passions. She is the co-thematic focal point on Variable Renewable Energy Grid Integration in the UNMGCY SDG7 youth constituency. As a UNESCO Education for Sustainable Development Youth Arab Leader, she has moderated several workshops on the SDGs. She has also represented youth in multiple conferences, notably as a panelist in the NGO-UNESCO liaison committee international forums, and as a speaker at the 2016 « Many Languages, One World » Global Youth Forum at UN HQ.
On an academic level, she is a Lebanese engineering student at École polytechnique in France, specialized in renewable energy such as wind, marine and hydro power. She hopes to combine her scientific and technical knowledge on energy engineering with her interest in energy policies in upcoming doctoral studies. The aim is to bridge the gap between scientific research and policy making to formulate comprehensive action plans that drive the energy transition forward effectively.
