On the Power Shifts project
This forum is organised by EYP Poland and is part of “Power Shifts - Reflecting Europe’s Energy” which is a project by the European Youth Parliament and the Schwarzkopf Foundation in cooperation with the RWE Foundation. It enables young people throughout Europe to monitor, inform themselves and debate about European energy policy from 2015 until 2017. The project will focus on the diversity and interdependency of energy policy on the European level, while France, Poland and Germany will serve as national example cases and will organise three international forums. Led by a steering group of young people who will further develop the academic content, the main activities of the project are the three academic forums in Lyon, France in 2015, in Warsaw, Poland this October and in Heidelberg, Germany in 2017.
