Members

What is a member?

Our members are non-profit, fully established European energy-focused youth organisations that support EYEN’s vision.

These active organisations either:

  • Represent youth in energy or climate policymaking;
  • Engage youth with energy or climate policymaking;
  • Educate youth on energy and sustainability.

Member organisations have the right to vote in any General Assembly meeting. If your organisation got accepted by the Governing Board and is waiting to be officially admitted by the General Assembly, you are considered a Candidate member. Candidate members enjoy all the benefits apart from being able to represent EYEN and having voting rights.
