European Sustainable Energy Week
European Youth Energy Day

About the dedicated programme for youth

The European Youth Energy Day, in the context of the European Sustainable Energy Week (EUSEW), has been organised since 2020. Each year, it gives young participants (aged 18-34) the chance to get involved in Europe’s sustainable energy transition.

The fourth edition of the European Youth Energy Day takes place during EUSEW Policy Conference 2023 and a young person advancing sustainable energy will receive a recognition during the event.

Previous editions

In 2020, the chosen format was a Roundtable Debate with young people and Frans Timmermans, European Commission’s Executive Vice-President of the European Green Deal. For the 2021 edition, a 48-hour Communication Hackathon focused on teams of young people generating ideas to boost renewables and energy efficiency. The European Youth Energy Network (EYEN) was a partner in these activities.

With 2022 declared the European Year of Youth, a prominent section of EUSEW was once again dedicated to young people and clean energy. A Dialogue between Commissioner for Energy Kadri Simson and young representatives took place on the first day of the event, followed by a series of presentations on cutting-edge technologies, significant for clean energy advancement and youth.
