"To travel Europe using clean and sustainable transport without compromising on comfort and performance."
In a bid to show that the means of tackling climate change through greener transport are accessible to the general public, ESCP Europe Business School's Energy Society are planning a high-profile electric vehicle tour of Europe. The trip will visit four of the School's six campuses - Berlin, London, Paris and Turin - between 13th and 18th March, 2016.
The team will cross seven international borders in the same number of Tesla cars. Each ESCP Europe campus visited will host a conference on the themes of energy efficiency, transport and climate change, and the team will visit Tesla's factory in the Netherlands and other sites relevant to their journey.
In a recent workshop held at ESCP Europe in London, the team expressed their aims as:
- To promote sustainable transport as a means to travel around the UK and Europe without compromising style, comfort or convenience
- To encourage students to explore innovative solutions and business opportunities to address climate change in a fun and inspiring way
- To illustrate the major paradigm shifts currently taking place in the energy sector
- To increase the visibility of ESCP Europe Business School and raise awareness of its full-time, one-year MSc in Energy Management and part-time Executive Master in Energy Management programmes
- Strengthening ties between students, alumni, and the business community, both during the tour and at various events designed to foster exchanges about the topics of energy, transport and sustainability
