Organiser YES-Europe

Organiser of YES-Europe Annual Conference

A little bit of History:

YES-Europe (Young leaders in Energy and Sustainability) grew out of a conference held at EPFL (Switzerland) in May 2016 that brought together 50 students from 9 European countries and various disciplines to brainstorm what impact we can make on solving the energy trilemma.  The aim of YES-Europe is to connect and empower young people passionate about energy and sustainability across Europe.

Who are YES-Europe-ers?

We are a community of 800+ (and growing) students and young professionals from various disciples who are the future energy leaders of Europe and the world. The YES-Europe Strategy Team is made up of 15 leaders from across Europe who volunteer their time to build this community.

What do we do?

Our non-profit organises events: First, the annual conference held previously in Lausanne, Madrid, Berlin, the Hague. Then, regional events where the local teams organise energy facility visits, meetings with the industry, team discussions, etc. Finally, international events such as a 300 people online Climathon or a summer camp. Added to events, we also publish reports, organise webinars and are becoming active at the EU policy level. More info on our website!
