Paris Session 2012

Members of CIGRE-UK NGN represented the NGN for its third Paris Session, and arranged a stand gathering similar Young Member groups from around the world into one place.

Young Member Stand

The 2012 Session featured a stand dedicated to CIGRE’s Young Members from around the world.  Organised by the UK NGN, the stand proved popular and explained the benefits of Young Member groups, where these groups are, what they do and some personal stories from the Young Members themselves.


Photos from Young Members at the Paris Session can be accessed via the NGN shared Google Drive.
