From the Regional Session of EYP Austria Power Shifts Fund moves to the Munster Regional Session of EYP Ireland that took place between 8-10th February 2019. With 205 participants this EYP session is known as one of the biggest regional EYP sessions in the network. The motto of the session "Power of One" was symbolically taken as a campaign run by national energy board at Irish primary schools encouraging young children to switch off the lights and appliances at home. Thus the session's aim was not only to incorporate energy topic in the academic field but also to instill a green culture at the Munster Regional Session by creating an environment that will encourage the participants to be mindful of their energy consumption throughout the weekend, as well as afterwards. We had a talk with Donagh who was in charge of the session's sustainability as a "Green Organiser".
