Lead the change: apply to become a Young Energy Ambassador

Become a Young Energy Ambassador

Are you a young professional contributing to the energy transition? The European Sustainable Energy Week (EUSEW) invites you to apply for its Young Energy Ambassadorship.

EUSEW is committed to empowering the leaders of tomorrow, today. Join a dynamic cohort of 30 vibrant minds, aged 18 to 34, from different fields across Europe. As a Young Energy Ambassador, you will have a unique chance to shape the conversation on the EU’s energy future, networking with key industry figures and policy-makers during the conference and beyond.  

Young voices need to be heard and we have got you covered: the EUSEW organising team will take care of all travel and accommodation costs for you to attend the conference in Brussels from 11 to 13 June 2024.

This is where your journey in sustainable energy takes off! Apply now for a chance to be part of this transformative experience – applications close on 3 March 2024.

Shaping the sustainability narrative

As a Young Energy Ambassador, you will be part of an influential group actively participating in discussions about clean energy and climate change mitigation. The role of a Young Energy Ambassador is multifaceted, including interactive sessions and a dedicated session at the Policy Conference. Here, you will bring youth perspectives to the forefront, discussing the environmental, social and economic impacts of energy communities. Your participation is not limited to discussions: you can also join co-creation workshops, where you will work on developing practical solutions for energy transition challenges.

European Sustainable Week 2024

This year’s edition promises to be a pivotal platform for discussing and advancing Europe’s energy goals in the context of global competitiveness and sustainability. Under the theme ‘Net-zero energy solutions for a competitive Europe’, it will focus on exploring and showcasing solutions that align with the EU’s ambitious net-zero targets.

Beyond covering all your travel and accommodation expenses, the ambassadorship will grant you full access to the event. Adding to a wealth of opportunities for participation, you will be directly involved in the activities of the fifth edition of the European Youth Energy Day (EYED), a forum dedicated to maximising the impact of young professionals that will also be held during EUSEW 2024.

Lasting impact

Your engagement as a Young Energy Ambassador extends beyond the European Sustainable Energy Week conference in June. With a year-long mandate, ambassadors have a sustained platform to share their perspectives and progress, making continual contributions to the EUSEW news and other forums.

Join the movement

Being a Young Energy Ambassador is more than a role; it is a chance to shape Europe’s energy landscape. If you are a young professional passionate about advancing clean energy solutions and combating climate change, apply to become a Young Energy Ambassador and be at the forefront of Europe’s sustainable future.
