Other events so far have also focused on dis-pute resolution, calculating reserves and resources, regional integration and oil, gas and infrastructure developments in Africa. Legacy As a not- for- profit organisation the WPC aims to ensure that any surpluses from its Congresses and meetings are directed into educational or charitable activities in the host country, thereby leaving an enduring legacy in the Host country. The WPC Legacy Programme started in 1994 with the 14thWorld Petroleum Congress when Norway put the surplus funds of the Congress towards the con-struction of Stavanger's state- of- the- art Petroleum Museum to help inform and edu-cate the public and in particular the younger generation on the history and operations of the petroleum sector. Young people were also addressed as a key aspect of the 15th World Petroleum Congress in Beijing through its theme " Technology and Globalization - Leading the Petroleum Industry into the 21st Century". To support their education and future involve-ment in the petroleum industry, the Chinese National Committee donated all computer and video equipment used at the Congress to its Petroleum University. Profits from the 16th Congress in Calgary were used to endow a fund providing schol-arships to post- secondary students in pe-troleum- related fields. The Canadian Government Millennium Scholarship Foundation matched the amount dollar for dollar which created an endowment that to-date has supported over 2000 students. The 17th World Petroleum Congress was the first to integrate the concept of sustaina-bility throughout its event. The Brazilian hosts took responsibility for the 16 tonnes of recy-clable waste generated by the Congress, with the proceeds of the recycling activities passed on to a local co- operative in Rio de Vision An enhanced understanding and image of the oil and gas sector's contribution to sus-tainable development. Mission To promote the development and utiliza-tion of oil and gas resources and other en-ergy sources in an efficient and sustainable way, for the benefit of the current and future generations. The WPC is the only global organisation that represents all aspects of the oil and gas sector, with the purpose of providing: . an enhanced understanding of issues and challenges . networking opportunities in a global forum . co- operation ( partnerships) with other organisations . an opportunity to showcase the industry's technical achievements . a forum for developing international busi-ness opportunities . information dissemination via congresses, reports, regional meetings and workshops . initiatives for recruiting and retaining ex-pertise and skills to the industry . promoting best practises in the production and consumption of energy resources. Values The WPC values strongly: . Cross- national dialogue and networking . Respect for individuals and cultures worldwide . Unbiased and objective views . Integrity . Transparency . Good governance . A positive perception of the industry . Science and technology . The views of other stakeholders Vision, Mission and Values

Practical help was provided by 250 volunteers who painted a public school and collected 36 tonnes of rubbish in a special community effort, donating all proceeds to some of the poorest inhabitants of Rio. The surplus funds of the Congress were used to set up the WPC Educational Fund in Brazil, which was further increased in 2005 with tax initiatives added by the government. The 18th World Petroleum Congress also chose a sustainability focus for the first WPC held in Africa. Besides providing skills development and practical training for un-employed youths in its unique Volunteers programme, the South African National Committee set up the 18th WPC Educational Legacy Trust to provide financial assistance to young South Africans wishing to pursue a qualification in petroleum studies. In 2008 the Spanish organisers of the 19th Congress in Madrid were the first to achieve a carbon neutral event by addressing the car-bon footprint of each delegate attending the event and neutralising its impact for the com-ing generations. Young people were the main benefactors of a number of legacy projects created by the surplus from the event. Qatar, Host for the 20th World Petroleum Congress in 2011, is already considering the long term legacy they wish to leave through the first Congress to be held in the Middle East, with education likely to be playing a key role in the allocation of surplus funds. WPC Structure The Council is the governing body of the World Petroleum Council which convenes once a year. Its global membership elects the President and an Executive Committee every three years to develop and execute its strategy. The Council also selects the host country for the next World Petroleum Congress from the candidate countries. To ensure the scientific and topical quality of the event the Council elects a Congress Programme Committee whose members are responsible for developing the high- level content for its Congress Programme. The Secretariat of the World Petroleum Council is based in London, led by the Director General and his dedicated team. WPC Youth Attracting young people to the oil and gas industry, keeping them involved and engaging them directly in WPC activities is a key strate-gic issue for the WPC. In response, WPC initi-ated a number of activities to engage youth in the industry and enhance their involvement in setting WPC's agenda for the future. The process began with the 1st Youth Forum in Beijing in 2004 where the WPC invited young people to address the future challenges for the petroleum industry. Held under the theme " Youth and Innovation - the Future of the Petroleum Industry" the Forum was an overwhelming success and won widespread acclaim from its partici-pants. The authors of the best papers were invited to the 18th World Petroleum Congress in Johannesburg the following year. Key Strategic Areas 1 World Class Congress A quality, premier world class oil and gas congress 2 National Committees Attracting and retaining National Committees and building stronger links 3 Youth and gender engagement Attraction and retention of young people and women in the oil and gas industry 4 Inter Congress Activities To organise workshops/ meetings and other activities on specific topics of relevance to WPC members 5 Outreach to other stakeholders Add value through the WPC by cooperation with other organisations 6 Communication To increase awareness, internally and ex-ternally of WPCs activities
