One Young World: bp Net Zero Scholarship to attend the One Young World Summit 2024 in Montréal, Canada

About the Scholarship

The world’s carbon budget is finite and running out; at bp we know we need a rapid and orderly transition to net zero. We all want a more balanced energy system, one that is reliable and affordable, but that is no longer enough. It must also be lower carbon. This will require nothing short of reimagining energy for people and our planet.

bp has set an ambition to become a net zero company by 2050 or sooner, and to help the world get to net zero. This means working hard to reduce carbon in the company’s operations and production while growing new low carbon businesses, products and services

Net Zero Scholars will receive:

  • Access to the One Young World Summit 2024 in Montréal.
  • Hotel accommodation between 17 – 21 September 2024.
  • Return flights to and from Montréal.
  • Catering which includes breakfast, lunch and dinner.
  • Access to bespoke bp programming including: pre-Summit briefing, a bp buddy from the company’s internal delegation and a post-Summit feedback session.

  • Nationals of all countries will be eligible to apply for this scholarship.
  •  Evidenced commitment to delivering positive change.
