Vision and Mission

YES-Europe is a community created to empower students and young professionals across Europe. We envision the energy transition toward sustainability through developing meaningful connections, exchange knowledge and learnings as well as foster creativity and engagement within youth to shape a sustainable future.

YES Europe has the mission of catalyzing the energy transition by creating an environment where youth are given a space to develop ideas, take on responsibility, build their local community and act for change.

How are we different?

Unlike other existing associations, YES-Europe is bridging the gap between the local and the European level. Many students associations are active in energy and sustainability, however, their actions are usually limited to their universities or country.

Another difference stems from our organisational structure and values, which promotes and encourages bottom-up initiatives. YES-Europe is a platform to give a voice to individual initiatives by providing a network, resources and experience. Lastly, our members’ competencies are not restricted to engineering but spans over a wide range of topics, including business and law.

Our Story

YES-Europe, created through an initiative of the EPFL university of Lausanne in Switzerland, brought together 50 students from 9 European countries for the first annual conference organised in May 2016 to connect and find meaningful ways to make a difference in the energy field.

Since then, YES-Europe community grew to become strong of 2,000 members in more than 15 countries. With an international team of 50 active members and local teams developing projects in different European countries as well as together, YES-Europe means to develop both international as well as national programmes to shape the future of energy in Europe and give a space for youth within this fundamental transition.

YES-Europe officially registered as a non-profit organization in 2020 in Geneva, Switzerland.

Our Network

YES-Europe consists of hundreds of members as well as partners from all around the world and living in Europe, either students or young professionals. In our network you can encounter engineers specialized in the field of energy and sustainability as well as individuals from the field of economy, law and public policy and we are always looking to further increase our diversity!
