Online-Panel Discussion: “Youth demands on climate and energy in the times of the COVID-19 crisis”
Whilst the COVID-19 pandemic is currently at the centre of public discourse, addressing climate change and transitioning to renewable energy systems should remain at the top of the agenda. The global pandemic and its disruptive consequences for the world’s economies and societies can be seen as a chance to build back better and move towards more sustainable systems for people and the planet.
As the generation standing to be affected the most by climate change, it is only natural that we should turn to society’s youngest to guide our response to it. Therefore, we are excited to invite you to the panel discussion “Youth demands on climate and energy in the times of the COVID-19 crisis”, which will introduce the Young Europe Ambassadors Policy recommendations for climate and energy and thereby contribute to the dialogue between European decision-makers and civil society, as envisioned by the Conference on the Future of Europe and the European Climate Pact.
Who are the Young Europe Ambassadors:
The Young Europe Ambassadors on the Future of Europe project involved a diverse group of 27 young people from 24 different European countries, aged between 18 and 26 who, within the framework of Germany’s Presidency of the Council of the European Union in 2020, were invited to discuss their visions for Europe with 27 Ministers of European Affairs of EU Member States. The paper “Policy Recommendations on Climate & Energy” constitutes a compilation of the proposals of the 7 Young Europe Ambassadors within this policy area. The project was run by European Youth Parliament in cooperation with German Federal Foreign Office.
GUESTS OF THE EVENING:
The event is moderated by Young Europe Ambassadors Federico Barbieri (IT) and Ema Odra Raščan (SI).
