Energy Network

We place youth at the heart of the European energy transition

Our Vision

We aim to be the voice of all energy-focused youth organisations in Europe, enabling youth to lead the European energy transition.

Today, there is a lack of youth engagement in energy policy. As youth we have the outside view which is necessary to question the status quo and find solutions to tackle the climate crisis. Additionally, there is a lack of cooperation between youth-led energy organisations and also insufficient understanding of institutions and processes. We built the European Youth Energy Network (EYEN) to fix that.

What we do

EYEN is the European network of energy-focused youth organisations from across Europe, whose mission is to place youth at the heart of the European energy transition. This is how we do it:

Connect

Energy-focused youth organizations with each other and to actors in the energy sector, both at international and local levels

Disseminate

Opportunities, share knowledge, develop skills with training programmes and improve the outreach of youth organizations

Empower

Young energy leaders, facilitating their engagement with national and European governments and their participation in high-level debates

Crowdfunding:

help us raise 15,000 €​

Establishing an organisation is costly… Maintaining the infrastructure which supports it as well. EYEN is run by volunteers, but we still have a lot of expenses to cover!

Let’s give wings to the youth voice of the European energy transition! Help us to place youth at its heart by donating to our crowdfunding.
