3 reasons why 2024 is your time to join EYEN 📈🚀
🤔 Are you a student or a young professional passionate about the energy sector? Are you ready to contribute with your skills and curiosity to the role of youth in the energy transition? Would you like to create real solutions and spaces for youth in sustainable energy as part of our task forces and our secretariat?
🚀 Then we cannot wait to welcome you on board! Apply to one of our open positions, get the chance to try out different roles in 4+ hours a week in an international team and create the inner architecture 🏛🚀 of a youth-led federation unlike any other.
✨Check out our plans for 2024 in our last special newsletter and let us give you 3 reasons why 2024 is your time to join us at EYEN right here below👇
1. You can be part of our task forces
that keep creating needed solutions 📈
🚀 In 2023, EYEN established new task forces to respond to pressing challenges for youth in the energy transition such as the lack of consideration for young energy consumers, and the need for more skilled workers in sustainable energy. Here’s a bit of what we achieved in the past year👇
🧭 EYEN and Green Jobs Tree developed the Energy Transition Careers Compass (ETCC), the online tool empowering youth to discover careers in the energy transition. Last year, our teams presented it to EU policy-makers and at COP28!
🌍 We have made young energy consumers’ voices heard for the first time at the 15th Citizens’ Energy Forum in Dublin, developed our own research and proposed potential solutions to alleviate energy poverty among youth.
📣 Do you want to be part of our task forces and co-create the next solutions? From task force deputy manager, to partnership and funding, and communications, the calls for the COP29 task force and the Young Energy Consumers task force are open!
Make 2024 count. Join our task forces 🚀
2. You can help us create more spaces
for youth in energy 🚀
For the past two years, we have created the space for youth to voice its opinion on the energy transition and collaborate with energy stakeholders towards concrete action: the European Youth Energy Forum (EYEF), the non-profit’s flagship event.
Our 2022 edition in Lisbon and the pre-event working sessions gathered 45 young participants who drafted their concrete proposals for meaningful youth engagement in the energy transition. 🎤 Since then, our team has presented the paper to EU and Portuguese officials, and organised #EYEF2023 in Berlin to transform 6 of the original proposals into step-by-step shareable roadmaps for stakeholders who want to implement them.
📣 EYEF returns in 2024 (location in Central and Eastern Europe to be revealed 🤫) after 2 editions! Will you join the organising team to turn an ambitious forum into a reality, involving an exchange with a variety of stakeholders of the energy sector and more work on powerful energy solutions?
🚀 Shape #EYEF2024 and apply by the 23rd of February to one of the open positions! We’re looking for:
➤ Event manager
➤ Event communication team
➤ Event logistics team
➤ Event programme team
➤ Event sponsorship team
📸 Check out our latest post for more on what’s coming and how you can help!

Apply to EYEF positions by February 23 🚀
3. Grow your skills in our dynamic teams 🚉 🌍
👉 As part of this recruitment round, we are also looking for passionate professionals and students for our Secretariat. This is the backbone of EYEN’s operations – and its teams deal with governance, communications, HR and funding. As part of the Secretariat, you will gain skills in the every-day functioning of an international organisation and the unmissable opportunity to learn about youth involvement in the energy sector! 🤝🌱
🌍 Apply now and you will get to work with a dynamic (and fun!) team of young energy engineers, environmental scientists, creatives & comms professionals, energy operations managers, sustainability consultants, activists, lawyers by day and so much more. Curious about EYEN’s plans and what it’s like working and growing in our teams? Hear from our Secretariat here below👇🚀
“2024 marks a new chapter for EYEN. After an imposing presence at COP28 and a successful EYEF, EYEN is ready to take on a new year of events, collaboration, and sustainable enrichment of Europe’s energy sector. I expect a more successful year for our organisation and the presence of new faces with us. Speaking of which, did you check our newest opportunities?”
It’s EYEN’s current Director of Secretariat speaking! Elsy has been the first Lebanese female representative to the Youth4Climate and PreCOP, a Max Thabiso Edkins Climate Ambassador and an EU JEEL Connector. After studying chemical engineering, she worked as an Associate Professional at IRENA. She currently is a PhD Candidate at Imperial College London.
“As I pack my metaphorical bags on my last day in EYEN, I do so with a full heart. It was an invaluable learning experience and I’m taking with me a new set of skills – strategic thinking, conflict management, discipline, critical thinking, and much more. But at the end of the day, it’s all about the people. It’s always about people. And I’m very lucky to have met so many amazing people.”
Tiago Vicente is Coordinator of Information and Education at ADENE – the Portuguese energy agency. He has worked in EYEN for more than two years until December 2023, first as part of the communications team, then as Event Coordinator for EYEN and as Governing Board Member for EYEN Development.
