The Regional Summer Academy will be thematically dedicated to provide an educational program on clean energy to educate pioneers of energy transition – young professionals in all sectors of society – media, academia, civil society, government, business and industry. The youth`s involvement in transition towards clean energy sources depends, largely, on their level of awareness and knowledge about energy, climate and environment issues. By increasing availability of and access to information on energy transition and sustainable development, youth can become an important actor against the climate change. The main purpose of the Cooperation Activity is to provide applicable knowledge and educational support relevant to topics which are emerging in transition towards clean energy sources including climate change adaptation and mitigation measures, sustainable-development and climate change related policies, renewable energy, energy efficiency, low-emission technologies and smart infrastructure for clean energy transition. The main idea of “CLEAN ENERGY ADVOCACY NETWORK TOWARDS CLIMATE-NEUTRAL EUROPE – CLEAN ENERGY ROADMAP” will be establishing network of young professionals in the field of clean energy, climate changes and sustainable development in CEI region. This network will enable further cooperation among young professionals, enhance dissemination and information in the mentioned topics. Many of them will benefit from such cooperation and collaborate with each other in different, mostly EU funded, projects.

In order to stimulate students to be creative, one full day site visits to renewable energy facilities (solar, biomass, geothermal, and small HPP) will be organized.
