CONSULTANT to conduct a baseline line study and stakeholder analysis as the basis for the the IKI project: “Green youth Labs: Training programme for innovation and a socially equitable energy transition”

Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung Vietnam office (FES) and Live & Learn (L&L) are looking for a consultant to conduct the baseline study and stakeholder analysis “Opportunities for youth engagement for a socially equitable energy transition in Viet Nam” as the basis for the described activities in scope of the Green youth labs.

Vietnam is experiencing high economic growth rates, combined with a rapidly growing energy demand. Although the expansion of renewable energies (solar, wind) is gaining momentum, a large proportion of energy is still generated from coal (2019: 37 percent). For a comprehensive energy transition, however, not only electricity production but also the transport sector must be decarbonized and energy efficiency in the building sector expanded. To advance the energy transition, increased awareness, and sensitization about the overall benefits of fossil-free energy and mobility concepts is necessary. Young people (who make up 70 percent of the total population) have developed an increasing awareness on climate change due to the country’s high vulnerability to its impacts. Yet, they are often excluded from the political decision-making processes and lack the necessary experience, expertise, or institutional support to implement their own ideas about how to advance the energy transition. Funded by the International Climate Initiative (IKI)the projectGreen youth Labs: Training programme for innovation and a socially equitable energy transition” aims to harness the creative potential of young people to develop innovative low carbon model projects and introduce them as future leaders to a low-carbon transformation of society.

The project aims to engage young people in low-carbon production and climate-friendly energy use at local and national levels. This is done through a two-stage training programme: an introductory module in North, Central and South Vietnam (with 50 participants each) and an advanced module in Central Vietnam, whose participants (30 in total) are selected based on pre-submitted project ideas. This is followed by a public Youth innovation challenge in which young people (up to 35 years) submit proposals for pilot projects in various categories (e.g. technology, aware-ness-raising). These programmes will take place annually over three years. Each year, the best 10 project ideas are selected by a panel of experts and the young people are supported conceptually and financially in their implementation through mentoring. The innovation challenge is coupled with an Energy Transition Fair, where the project proposals are presented to the private sector.
