Taylor Hopkinson and OffshoreWind4Kids bring educational events to Asia
Children across Asia are set to learn about engineering, technology and renewables thanks to our continued partnership with OffshoreWind4Kids, a global programme designed to engage children in STEM education.
The wind industry has generated nearly 1.2 million jobs globally with an additional 4.3 million jobs forecast over the next five years. We’re committed to taking steps to address the potential skills gap and attract the next generation of renewables specialists.
OffshoreWind4Kids aims to teach children about renewable energy in a fun and engaging way, through a programme of demonstration days and educational activities across the world.
We will be delivering a series of “Wind4Kids” events that will be held indoors and are less technical that the offshore variation. Families are encouraged to sign up to take part in the initiative and join the Wind4Kids team at their local venue, where children can get hands on with small scale wind turbines and learn about various aspects of wind energy.

“The offshore wind sector is accelerating at pace, and this presents exciting, sustainable career opportunities globally,” says Tom Hopkinson, our CEO. “We believe that OffshoreWind4Kids is a fantastic initiative that offers the perfect solution to attracting the next generation of talent. Involving kids at an early age in fun activities related to offshore wind is a great way to influence their potential career choices, inspire them to join the industry and create awareness for the environment in general.
“I would encourage anyone with an interest in renewables, or children that just like to spend some time doing fun things, to sign up and join us.”
