YES-Europe organizes different types of events every year around the energy transition. With our events, we aim to investigate different topics related to energy and sustainability in various fields like economics, public policies or sciences. Every year, our different teams around Europe gather for an international annual conference and get the chance to exchange over time with series of regional events held in different European cities. These events are opportunities for young professionals, students, experts and other stakeholders from the energy and sustainability industry to come together in order to connect, learn and debate to shape the future of Europe.

Events in 2021

We are currently planning different international events including participation in the COP26 international programme as well as a Climathon with different partners like EYEN or YES-DC. Inspired by REN21’s report on Renewables in Cities, we aim to discuss opportunities and challenges in reshaping the energy landscape as well as the role of youths and individuals’ actions within the local energy transition.

We also have knowledge-sharing sessions, panel discussions as well as meet-ups organised by our local teams to discuss energy-related topics as well as professional tools for youth to engage around sustainability. Stay tuned for more information and get in touch if you want to be part of our international programme management!

For the first time in 2020, both international and local teams from YES-Europe had the chance to meet for an online international kick-off event.
