Participants get a chance to debate energy-related topics in the frame of EYP events like national- or regional-level sessions or International Sessions, which can gather up to 900 young people between the ages of 16-28.
Funding is provided throughout the project cycle to encourage the development and accessibility of energy-related topics for decentralised national- and regional-level events, which can gather up to 300 participants.
The outcomes of Power Shifts debates will be summarised during annual Power Labs and presented in Young Energy Opinion papers, which are shared with decision-makers and stakeholders.
We foster an innovative spirit in the EYP network and provide participants with a platform to discuss innovations during yearly EYP Innovation Labs.

Concrete sub-topics are developed by EYP participants, reflecting the interests of the European Youth Parliament and current issues.
