The Climate Youth Action Plan: Empowering Young Europeans to Act for Climate Neutrality

The “Climate Youth Action Plan” project aims to encourage young people across Europe to explore, discuss, and ultimately act for climate neutrality within their existing engagement with the EYP and with their local and national communities. We want to facilitate members of the EYP connecting and reflecting on climate and energy issues in relation to their own civil society work. This will be done through the creation of a space to discuss, debate and prototype ideas for a climate-neutral Europe that will ultimately be presented to and discussed with decision-makers.

The project is run by the European Youth Parliament in cooperation with the E.ON Stiftung.

Activities

Post-War Ukraine Ukraine Lab and Rebuild Ukraine Ambassadors

Post-War Ukraine: Ukraine Lab and Rebuild Ukraine Ambassadors

A group of young Europeans will develop innovative ideas for the reconstruction and recovery of Ukraine with a special focus on climate neutrality and sustainable energy transition. They will consult with experts, discuss their ideas with policy makers, and disseminate these throughout the network. The programme will be launched in winter 2022/23.

Power Shifts 2

Sustainable Engagement Fund

National EYP associations organisations can apply annually for financial support to implement particularly climate-friendly projects and formats. These can address the issue of sustainability in terms of content (event topics), organisation (event framework), and the involvement of relevant stakeholders (local partners, other supporters from civil society and politics).

Young Ambassadors for Climate Neutrality

Young Ambassadors for Climate Neutrality

The Young Ambassadors will create visibility for young perspectives on key energy transition issues. They will address decision-makers and bodies on the national and international level and discuss the necessary conditions and challenges of ensuring a sustainable civil society in Europe. This programme will be launched in 2023.

Digital Advocacy

Digital Advocacy for Inclusive Energy Transition

The EYP network’s Instagram channel, driven by the Young Ambassadors and other active EYPers, will frequently address energy-related issues and offer a platform for exchange and sharing of the project-related lessons and ideas. In particular, it will discuss approaches to action on climate neutrality.

Young Climate Idea Competition (Launch in 2024)

This competition will offer members of our network and beyond the opportunity to apply with project ideas and prototypes for sustainable European engagement formats. The best ideas will be further developed as model projects and tested by fellow participants with a (social) entrepreneurial mind-set.
