Climate Youth Action Plan

This European Youth Parliament project encourages young people across Europe to explore, discuss, and ultimately bring about climate action within their existing engagement at the EYP and in their local and national communities.

We want to connect members of the European Youth Parliament  (EYP) at the intersection of civil society, energy, and climate issues and their political communication by creating a space to discuss, debate, and prototype ideas for a sustainable Europe that will ultimately be presented to and discussed with decision-makers.

The project is run by the EYP and the Schwarzkopf Foundation in cooperation with the E.ON Stiftung.

“Rebuild Ukraine Ambassadors” programme

Focusing on economic recovery issues with social and environmental considerations in the context of Ukraine’s post-war reconstruction and rapprochement with Europe, the “Rebuild Ukraine Ambassadors” Programme is a project organised by the EYP to give young perspectives on Ukrainian reconstruction a platform. Most prominently, it features the Rebuild Ukraine Lab, a three-day workshop with more than 30 participants from across Europe that gathered young ideas on how Ukraine should be rebuilt. This workshop took place in a hybrid and cross-border format from the 20th – 22nd January 2023. Due to difficulties arising from the war in regard to travel and general accessibility, the best path to a successful event was to have two physical hubs: one in Warsaw, Poland and one in Lviv, Ukraine. The participants also engaged with the event programme in a digital format which ensured accessibility as well as cooperation between participants at the different hubs. In July 2023 the Ambassadors published their vision paper “Towards a Sustainable Reconstruction of Ukraine: Youth Perspectives from Europe

The organisation of the Lab is being supported by the hard work of EYP Ukraine and EYP Poland alongside the Governing Body and the International Office.

Sustainable Engagement Fund

National EYP 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). The goal of the Fund is to aid our member organisations in implementing and improving practices that can reduce the overall carbon footprint of the EYP network in a manner that can be replicated for years to come.

Young European Multipliers for Climate Action

The Young European Multipliers for Climate Action (YEMCA) are a group of 10 young Europeans who are working to create visibility for young perspectives on key sustainability issues. The YEMCA will use social media, EYP events, and other channels to increase the visibility of young opinions from across Europe on energy transition and climate action. The project aims to address the underrepresentation of youth in the decision-making process by presenting an array of perspectives on this crucial topic to decision-makers, with a view of reaching incoming Members of the European Parliament in 2024 and to mobilise first-time voters from the EYP network to vote in the European elections 2024.

Future activity

  • Young Climate Idea Competition

    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 mindset. The goal of the Youth Climate Idea Competition is to take excellent ideas about sustainability from across the network and turn them into concrete projects.
