4Gen - 2019

Leaders in Energy: The Four Gen Awards

It’s time to make your nomination for the 2019 Leaders in Energy Four Generations Awards.  

We are excited to open the nomination process for the 6th annual “Four Generations of Leaders in Clean Energy and Sustainable Solutions Awards” – The Four Gen Awards!

Purpose:  To recognize leaders in the clean energy and sustainability arena from each of the four generations who will share their lessons learned and tips on leadership to our audience. This will be Leaders in Energy’s sixth year to conduct this very successful event which will feature honorees from each of the four generations, e.g., World War II, Baby Boomer, Gen X, and Millennial/Gen Z who exemplify leadership in the energy and sustainability arena. Leaders in Energy is an inclusive organization promoting the interaction, partnership, and mentoring among all generations, with diverse backgrounds and work experiences.

This year's theme is “Alliances for Action: Coalitions, Collaborations, and Partnerships.”

When problems are large or highly complex – sometimes called “wicked” – this is where coalitions, collaborations, and partnerships can make all the difference!

The recent Climate March is a great example of how individuals and organizations can come together to change the world for the better.  Developing a shared agenda and taking collaborative action is key for success!

This year’s 4Gen will showcase individuals and organizations who have realized the African proverb, “When you want to go fast, go alone, but when you want to go far, go together.” 

Truly it takes a village to create and build a world where clean energy is the norm, where climate change has been reversed, where green jobs are the majority of the economy, and where humans live fully in cooperation with nature, for the benefit of the planet and of all life.   

Yes, this ideal world IS possible. It is happening as a result of Leaders in Energy members working along with countless others committed to a harmonious green world! 

The 2019 Four Gen Awards – “Alliances for Action: Coalitions, Collaborations, and Partnerships”

Who to Nominate:  You can nominate individuals – acting on their own, or as part of an organization – who have stepped forward to establish or substantially advance a coalition, collaboration, or partnership that is having a positive impact on the important environmental challenges we face today as a world.  This can also include individuals who are working on projects, programs, and initiatives with a diverse team that can lead us in this direction. 

Why Four Generations: LE believes in harnessing the talents of all Four Generations – a collaboration across the ages - to advance clean energy and sustainable solutions for the environment, encompassing technology, economic and social innovation. The awards will feature an honoree from each of the four generations, e.g., World War II, Baby Boomer, Gen X, and Millennial/Gen Z who exemplifies leadership in the energy and/or sustainability arenas.
