Trevelyan Wing - Young Leaders 2020


C-EENRG researcher and PhD candidate Trevelyan Wing has been named a ‘Young Leader’ by EUROCITIES and URBAN FUTURE. Chosen as one of the “most promising and passionate” young urban changemakers 30 years or under, Trevelyan has been invited to join a select group of peers from around the world in Lisbon this spring at the Urban Future Global Conference, Europe’s largest event for sustainable cities.
“The Young Leaders 2020 come from 45 cities in 31 countries and are passionate about a huge variety of topics, including urban mobility, liveable districts, tactical urbanism, water, youth empowerment, policy, and many more”, according to the organisers.
In this capacity, Trevelyan will be meeting and exchanging ideas with diverse experts and mayors, business leaders, chief city planners, and other experienced urban changemakers in a private setting. He will also participate in the wider conference, which brings together 3000 people representing 400 cities worldwide to promote a shift towards more sustainable cities.
At Cambridge, Trevelyan is pursuing a PhD investigating energy policies and the low-carbon transition at the city level. His current work focuses on Germany and the development and implications of energy democracy in Berlin and Hamburg, against the backdrop of the country’s broader ‘Energiewende’ (energy transition). A member of Peterhouse, he is supervised by Prof. Laura Diaz Anadon, C-EENRG Fellow and Professor of Climate Change Policy at the University of Cambridge.
“Cities are playing an increasingly important role in shaping a sustainable future for our planet, and I’m honoured to be included alongside such a talented group of individuals working towards this goal. I look forward to engaging with them and others committed to this greater effort in Lisbon, and to representing C-EENRG, my college, the Cambridge community, and my home cities of Boston and Hong Kong”, Trevelyan said.
