Panel Discussion - “Youth demands on climate and energy in the times of the COVID-19 crisis”

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 policy 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. The panel will occur on February 17th, at 16:30 - 18:00 CET.

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.
