YIFE Project week (Ballinteer)

Transition Year students from Wesley College in Ballinteer will participate in the Young Ideas for Europe Programme.  The Young Ideas for Europe is an initiative which inspires young people aged 15 to 18 to actively shape Europe’s political, economic and social future – giving young people a voice in European politics.

Its goal is simple: to create enthusiasm among European youth for the European project, to engage them in a meaningful dialogue and give them a chance to create their own visions for Europe.  During this five-day project week, students will develop ideas for sustainable energy plans to meet Europe’s future needs.

The best of these ideas throughout Europe are brought together into a common action plan – “New Energy for Europe” – which will be presented to the EU Presidencies and decision-makers in Brussels. The work of the students during the five-day project week is supported by political patrons and experts from the political and business community.
