„Power Shifts - Reflecting Europe’s Energy“ is a project by the European Youth Parliament and the Schwarzkopf Foundation in cooperation with the innogy Foundation. Heidelberg 2017 – Power Shifts Academic Forum is organised by the European Youth Parliament Germany. Three focus countries, France, Poland and Germany have hosted and will host an international youth forum in the project timeline from 2015 until 2017 involving over 100 young participants from all over Europe. The forum participants are supported by eight young experts, the Steering Group. The group will accompany the academic forums until 2017 and provide the analytical preparation for the discussions.

Warsaw, Poland will follow in October 2016. Their concluding product will be a policy summary, which is to set the basis of the discussions during the final event in Brussels. The project is supported by the patronage of Maroš Šefčovič, Vice-President of the European Commission and head of the project Energy Union; Sigmar Gabriel, Vice-chancellor and Federal Minister for Economic Affairs and Energy in Germany as well as Krzysztof Tchórzewski, Minister for Energy in Poland.

The forum will be held from the 9th - 16th August 2017 with officials arriving on 8th August and delegates on 9th August. There will be a Chairs, Media and Organisers Training held in Berlin prior to the session. The forum is head organised by Ms Christine Meiser (DE) and Ms Ella Gemünd (DE) and presided by Ms Maria Pashi (CY).

All good things must come to an end, and if it's not good, it's probably not the end.

With that in mind, we compiled the session magazine towards the end of the session and now after some minor corrections, it shall be last official piece of work by the MT of HD 17 so we can also put the session to rest with all its glittering memories.

The Media Team of the session followed an approach of academic collaboration with the chairs team. The MT members thus engaged in events such as Introductory Clauses understanding and Lobby Night. Furthermore every journalist wrote a resolution briefing to assist the delegates with easy understandable descriptions of each resolution. Have a look!

"When you are enthusiastic about what you do, you feel this positive energy. It's very simple. " - Paulo Coelho.

One week ago the session came to an end. We hope that the sparks of the event spread positive energy amongst the participants and that they will keep Heidelberg 2017 in sparkling memory.

The media team tried to capture this positive energy amongst the participants in our final photo project: a sparkler photo booth during the Gala Night.
