Discover more opportunities at #EUSEW2024 🌱 Making young energy consumers heard at the 15th Citizens' Energy Forum 🏛📊 👉 Did you know that youth is an often neglected vulnerable group when it comes to energy consumers' policies? We have set out to change this. Since the creation of the Young Energy Consumers task force back in April, the team has been working with the clear objective of making young energy consumers more visible in energy consumer policies in the EU (check out their story for more!). 🚀 Their first focus of the task force was energy poverty, a topic that is particularly important for a just transition, and to ensure no one is left behind. After almost a year of research & cooperation with stakeholders, the team presented its findings and their solutions at the 15th Citizens Energy Forum in Dublin. Find out more on energy poverty's impact on youth, government policies & good practices in their report! 📑 Read the report on young energy consumers 📑 #EYEF2023: presenting 6 solutions for youth engagement in the energy sector 🦜 How do you create the space for youth to voice its opinion on the energy transition and collaborate with energy stakeholders towards concrete action? EYEN has been doing it since 2022 by organising its yearly European Youth Energy Forum (EYEF). Cause for the European energy transition to be just & inclusive, it needs to accommodate the needs and participatory rights of all. Last November, EYEF gathered 40 young energy professionals of 30 nationalities at📍Fraunhofer Energy & Climate in Berlin with one goal: reviewing 6 solutions for better youth engagement in the energy sector out of the 12 developed during #EYEF2022. 📝 Youth, who are key actors in shifting the current paradigm and conventional procedures – with engagement, knowledge, legitimacy and diversity. During the online work preceding the event, and the 3-day conference in Berlin, stakeholders such as Statkraft, the European Commission, the German Federal Ministry for Economics and Climate Action, the Fraunhofer Institute for Systems and Innovation Research, the German Renewable Energy Agency and Elia took the stage with participants 🎤and helped them design concrete roadmaps stakeholders are called on to implement across the education, policy-making and private sectors. A sneak peek at (some) EYEF2023 proposals to boost youth in energy 🚀 🏛 The European Youth Energy Hub: a one stop shop for Youth Energy Engagement, is designed to deal with the need for skilled workers (a potential 270% increase compared to current jobs in energy) and the current fragmentation of the information on opportunities within the European clean energy sector. This labour and skills gap can be addressed by creating a comprehensive website for youth to discover civic engagement, educational and vocational, employment opportunities, and allow them to make an informed decision about future life choices. 🎓 EmpowerED – the University Module for Student-Led Energy Transition Workshops for high school pupils – codifies a syllabus for a module for third-level institutions and addresses the gap in knowledge about climate and energy related topics across youth. EmpowerED encourages intergenerational dialogue surrounding energy by having university students teach the module, and creates an inclusive space for orientation & education. 👉 Curious to know more?

Find out more about the Energy Transition Careers Compass on our website and check out the project's booklet below👇(for more on our partners, the ETCC task force, their goals, and the way they are are working to make a difference in the energy sector) ✅ Discover the ETCC booklet 📖 COP28 & the Energy Transition Careers Compass: in the words of representatives of the COP28 Task Force Federica Matone, a Public Policy Master's student at Sciences Po Paris, is an incoming intern at the UNESCO Regional Office for Eastern Africa. After completing a UN Secretariat internship in climate communication, she joined the EYEN COP28 Task Force to enhance COP28 side events, and work in networking and youth engagement in the energy sector. "From COP28, I expect a renewed emphasis on integrating youth perspectives at the forefront of climate action and the energy transition. By presenting the Energy Transition Careers Compass as an instrument to build energy transition careers, we hope to empower the next generation, enabling them to play a pivotal role in driving the energy transition and guiding us towards a sustainable and resilient future." Aretina Stefani earned her Law Degree from Queen Mary University of London and is currently pursuing an LLM in Energy and Climate Law at the University of Groningen. In 2021, she interned at the Centre for Environmental Law Education Research and Advocacy in India, and represented the European Law Students Association in the Regional Forum on Sustainable Development of 2021. She attended COY17 and EYEF2022. "From COP28, I expect a paradigm shift in the way we think about the energy transition. It is not enough to decarbonise existing systems, we must address how people access and consume energy, who has ownership and control over its production, and what makes people feel empowered towards generating energy in a fair and inclusive way. To truly achieve a net-zero future, we need a global response to the unjust divide in the policy mindset and to restructure our energy systems with hands-on solutions." Pedro is a European Funds Specialist at EDP, a global energy company. Supported by a background in Environmental Engineering and Public Policy, he oversees diverse global projects, managing various stakeholders, and closely monitoring different energy policies. He can often be found attending energy conferences, a passion that he now balances with his role as a Content Manager at the Energy Transition Careers Compass. "There is a growing emphasis on two themes in anticipation of COP28: the main review of the Paris Agreement since its creation back in 2015, the Global Stocktake, and the theme of Loss and Damage. We want the news to cover a third highlight post-COP: the Energy Transition Careers Compass." Take me to the Energy Transition Careers Compass 🧭 #EYEF2023: presenting 6 solutions for meaningful youth engagement 🦜 Since 2022, EYEN organises the European Youth Energy Forum with the mission of creating the space for youth to voice its opinion and collaborate with energy stakeholders towards concrete action. The first edition in Lisbon gathered 45 young participants and resulted in concrete proposals for meaningful youth engagement in the European energy transition, presented to EU and Portuguese officials. The second edition of EYEF has just happened in Berlin: find out everything about it below in our special report from behind the scenes! 🍿👇 How do you connect the voice of youth in the European energy transition? We did it with 40 young energy professionals at📍Fraunhofer Energy & Climate in Berlin and one goal: reviewing 6 solutions for better youth engagement in the energy sector. 👉 In the two months leading up to the in-person event, participants collaborated in 6 groups – one dedicated to each proposal – to create a step-by-step shareable roadmap for stakeholders to implement the solutions in their organisations, companies or institutions: 🎯 The creation of a Youth Energy Council 🎯 Energy transition workshops for high school students 🎯 One-stop-shop for youth energy engagement 🎯 Just Energy Transition Trainings 🎯 Work-study programmes 🎯 National Talent Pool for blue collar workers in the energy sector 🤝 In Berlin, they finalised their work with the help of experts from the private and public sector like Statkraft, the European Commission, the German Federal Ministry for Economics and Climate Action, the Fraunhofer Institute for Systems and Innovation Research (ISI), the German Renewable Energy Agency (AEE) and Elia. In different formats, stakeholders from the energy sector joined our three-day discussions, from 31 October to 3 November, and took the stage 🎤 with the participants. But #EYEF2023 is not over yet: keep an eye on our social media, as this year's position paper will be published soon 📝 In the meantime, you can rewatch the closing livestream with us to see the 6 proposal teams present our concrete solutions on stage 📺 👉 and reach out if you'd like to help us organise the next European Youth Energy Forum! Rewatch: 6 concrete solutions for youth engagement 📑📺 Young Energy Consumers at the 15th Citizens' Energy Forum 📣 🏛 In April 2023, EYEN created the Young Energy Consumers (YEC) Task Force with an ambitious goal: making young energy consumers more visible in EU policy at a time when they are seriously underrepresented (see our story for more!) 📚Over the last months, the YEC Task Force has built knowledge on youth as an energy consumer group in Europe and the specific topic of energy poverty, collaborated & presented its findings to stakeholders such as the Energy Poverty Advisory Hub (EPAH) and the European Commission. 📝 On the 8th of November, the Task Force presented its statement to the 15th Citizens' Energy Forum in Dublin, the yearly event organised by the European Commission and the Irish Commission for Regulation of Utilities (CRU) to create a bridge between stakeholders involved in EU energy consumption. A sneak-peek into the YEC Task Force's findings 👇 📑 📊 Young energy consumers (18-35 years old) earn an average monthly salary ranging from 1400 to 1600 euros a month. They predominantly live in rented homes, which have low energy efficiency ratings (classes C-E). 🌡They can be considered as extremely vulnerable to energy poverty because of their reduced disposable income and substandard housing, often with poor insulation, and lacking access to affordable energy services. ❌ No country has implemented specific energy policies tailored to address the unique needs of youth. Youth is not classified as a vulnerable group, and data on youth experiencing energy poverty remains scarce. 🚀 Read the Task Force's statement to discover our concrete proposals to address energy poverty in youth: from landlord mandates and special incentives, to enhanced youth participation and increased research on youth as a fundamental stakeholder group in the energy sector 🤝 Rewatch the live stream to find out more 💻 Check out the project's dedicated page 📊 EYEN elects Governing Board 📣 & welcomes new member organisation 🏛 🚀 Our network is growing! EYEN's latest General Assembly on the 15th of November reunited all our member organisations to connect on the network's achievements for 2023 and think about the future of EYEN. 💭 👏👏 For starters, the organisation elected new officials in our Governing Board, which officially represents and manages the federation and is now composed by Federico Barbieri (President), Carlotta Ferri (Vice-President), Jonas Henke (Treasurer), and Marco Gervasi (EYEN Development). 🌱They will be supported by our incoming Advisory Board, which provides strategic advice on our activities and all aspects of the work of the organisation (nominees to be appointed soon, upon confirmation!) With the last General Assembly, we also welcomed a new member organisation: the Young Energy Professionals Forum. 🎊🎊🎊 👉 The YEP Forum is a community of over 2000 members at Energy UK - from analysts to engineers and many more - that promotes and inspires the next generation of energy industry leaders, providing opportunities to connect, develop, and recognise success. The Forum runs events and initiatives that covers the whole spectrum of the energy sector, offers insights on pressing issues and career perspectives. Curious?
