A series of webinars focusing on the cool careers that make the world better are coming in June to celebrate World Refrigeration Day, June 26.
World Refrigeration Day secretariat announced it will partner with seven organizations to make students and young professionals globally aware of career opportunities in fields relying on refrigeration technology.
Who researches how food can be preserved from its source to the table and how vaccines and medicines can be shipped around the world? Who enables data centers to function? How can climate change be stabilized while not sacrificing modern convenience? Who safely manages the processes that enable air to be cooled? How can the quality of indoor air be improved, and disease transmission prevented?
The people, “cooling champions,” and the careers that make modern life possible will be spotlighted in “cool careers” webinars over two weeks in June.
Organised as part of the day’s 2021 campaign theme “Cooling Champions: Cool Careers for a Better World,” the webinars will be conducted by groups whose networks reach into developed and developing nations. Campaign partners are UNEP OzonAction, ASHRAE, EPEE, FAIAR, IIR, ISHRAE, and U-3ARC. The objective is to inspire students and those early in their career path to join the more than 15 million people worldwide currently employed in the refrigeration sector, making the world better.
“Partnering with these organisations enables the refrigeration industry to reach out globally, with particular emphasis on developing countries, to expand the workforce that supports life-giving and society-dependent technologies,” said Steve Gill, World Refrigeration Day head of secretariat.
“Opportunities within the industry abound for young people with a wide range of career aspirations. Advanced cooling technologies provide them with a profession that improves life in their communities and in the world as a whole.”
Each campaign partner will target career opportunities with webinars in the language common within that network. Special emphasis will be given to sectors that are commonly less known like Cold Chain, Refrigerant Management, Indoor Air-Quality, Sustainability, Heat Pumps, and Not-in-Kind Technologies. Gender equality and promoting women in cooling careers will be highlighted in this year’s campaign as well. The schedule of webinars and topics will be available in the coming weeks at www.worldrefrigerationday.org.
