Rising to challenge during, beyond European Year of Youth

Now more than ever, Europe needs ambitious and concrete solutions to invest in renewables and accelerate the clean energy transition, according to the call, in which a special focus on the RePowerEU plan was added. The European Union is launching emergency measures to lower its dependence on Russian fossil fuels and accelerate the deployment of renewables and energy efficiency improvements.

“We want to hear about innovative EU-funded projects, impactful local initiatives, women leading the change and young people rising to the challenge during and beyond the European Year of Youth,” CINEA said. The agency runs EUSEW in close cooperation with the EU’s Directorate-General for Energy.

The European Sustainable Energy Week was launched in 2007 by the European Commission. This year it will be organized in a hybrid format, so participants and speakers are able to participate onsite and online. The event will also comprise a high-level policy conference, the third European Youth Energy Day and opportunities for meetings, exhibition stands and other networking activities.
