WRD launches 'cool careers for a better world' campaign

World Refrigeration Day celebrates the people and technologies responsible for creating and maintaining the world we live in, a world dependent upon temperature-controlled environments. Centred around June 26, the event is supported globally by industry, professional groups, scientific and engineering associations, as well as by governments and individuals.

 

The WRD 21 campaign will focus on careers in the refrigeration,  air-conditioning and heat pumps industry and is titled “Cooling Champions: Cool Careers for a Better World”. The goal of the campaign is to inspire students and young professionals - for both men and women - in all countries, encouraging them to meet the challenges faced in their communities.

Following successful campaigns in the last two years, the WRD Secretariat will continue partnering with UNEP OzonAction in the WRD 21 campaign to attract a new generation of Cooling Champions. The campaign includes other partners representing the industry and professionals around the world. The full list of partners and the campaign program will be announced in the coming weeks.

Refrigeration is at the very heart of modern life. Some 12 million people are employed worldwide in the refrigeration sector. The total number of refrigeration, air-conditioning and heat-pump systems in operation worldwide is around 3 billion. Those systems provide the conditions we require for health, comfort, worker productivity, manufacturing, and essential environments for food, pharmaceuticals, and digital data. Dedicated professionals design, build, maintain, and regulate them as well as educate a new generation of practitioners.

Opportunities within the industry abound for young people with a wide range of career aspirations. Advanced cooling technologies need to be implemented in order to expand life required environmental conditions while meeting sustainability requirements of international climate and ozone protection accords.  A new generation of cooling champions – engineers, technicians, researchers, educators, policy experts and executives – are needed to create controlled environments modern live requires. The benefits of reaching into a wide diversity of communities for promising talent will be a high campaign priority.
