125- www. energy- future. com 7.1- The World Petroleum Council Janeiro. 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

126- www. world- petroleum. org 7.1- The World Petroleum Council To continue the dialogue and to enhance the involvement of young people in its agenda, the WPC established a Youth Committee in 2006. The 17 young people under 35 from WPC member countries act as ambassadors for the next generation, provide a young peo-ple's perspective for the Council's work and help put in place strategies to engage youth around the world in the petroleum industry. Their mission is to promote a realistic im-age of the petroleum industry amongst the youth together with its challenges and oppor-tunities and initiate the creation of a collabo-rative and global forum for young people to be heard and new ideas to be championed. The Committee's first task was to create a series of activities for the Youth Programme of the 19th World Petroleum Congress. The new Youth Committee was elected during the 2008 Council meeting and play a major role in planning for the 20th World Petroleum Congress taking place in Qatar in 2011. They also play a key role in the or-ganisation of the 2nd WPC Youth Forum un-der the theme of " Energise Your Future", in Paris, France, November 18- 20, 2009. Members of the WPC Youth Committee contributed to the programme development and the concept of an online youth network " Energise My Network", which will provide an ongoing networking opportunity for young people interested in the petroleum industry. The members of the Youth Committee continue working with each other and the Council's bodies to engage with students and young professionals to design a sus-tainable future and promote their message that the energy sector is a challenging and exciting industry to work for. ??
