“My generation is GROOMED TO BE GREEN”


© 2020, Philip Wøhlk

22-year-old Philip Wøhlk always knew he wanted to do something ‘green’ and practical with his life. Today he’s studying to become an Energy Specialist – a natural choice for a technically-inclined boy growing up in a CO2-threatened world, he thinks.

“I’ve always been fascinated by the environment – and science. I’m from a generation, who’s been growing up on technical possibilities, discussions of climate change and a focus on helping nature survive. I believe that young people think fundamentally differently than the older generations – we’re born into a green perspective,” says Philip Wøhlk who is studying to be a plumber with a specific interest in energy alteration.
He is dreaming of making a difference in a realistic kind of way – and being part of the small but constant movement forward when it comes to sustainable energy and reducing emissions.
