How to support people in Syria so that they do not have to leave their country? Professor Elias Warde will answer to this question especially from the perspective of energy. He is the president of the Association "Energy, Development, and Ecology" (EDE) which aims to support Syrian populations in fundamental and basic domains as energy, and sustainable development.

Energy projects are of first necessity to ensure lighting, electric power supply for hospitals, schools, or in water extraction from wells. As consequences, this will allow the birth of some economic activities in agriculture, and probable simple local manufactories. This helps populations to stay in Syria and to resist to the regime, or extremists avoiding a very damaged and often dangerous migration of Syrians from their country.

This kind of activity is useful also to prepare the civil peace of the future Syria by diffusing the culture of the sustainable development, renewable energies, and finding real, national and economical solutions for Syrian future which will face a very deep problems in economy for the reconstruction processes.

After the one-hour discussion students from GLOMAS-programme from Sibelius Academy will perform.

Organisers: Finnish Syrian Friendship Association and GLOMAS-programme from Sibelius Academy
