What is the Young Generation Network (YGN)?
Any member of the Nuclear Institute under the age of 37 becomes part of the Young Generation Network. The YGN is a lively network who work to inspire and engage young people by showcasing the opportunities within the nuclear sector. The YGN also supports those in their early career with opportunities to learn more about the wider sector and meet with industrial leading professionals.
The NI YGN strategy above provides an overview of their key themes of focus.
#1 The Young Generation Network aims to encourage people to want to start a career in nuclear. They do this by helping to improve the understanding of nuclear.
#2 The Young Generation Network helps to develop the personal and professional qualities of YGN members. The ultimate aim is for them to progress to full membership with the Nuclear Institute.
#3 The Young Generation Network aims to engage with people by advocating for nuclear technologies and dispelling the myths around the industry.
