Community Energy youth summit - engaging young people in renewable energy sources
Burnham & Weston
In partnership with Weston College, Burnham & Weston's vision is to enable young people within their local community deliver a Community Energy Youth Summit. Both partners recognise how important it is to listen to young people as they have been the demographic that has been most difficult to engage. This engagement project will enable the partnership to both see and hear what opportunities are needed locally for community energy youth support.

"Burnham and Weston Energy are delighted that Younity have decided to support our Community Energy Youth Summit with Weston College. We really want to involve more young people in community energy and, as a demographic hard to engage to-date, we recognise it is important we listen to young people to understand how we can engage them and what opportunities are needed locally."
