Innovation Lab 2019

29/11/2019 to 01/12/2019 

EYP Innovators are needed!

Do you have an idea how to make EYP more impactful by modifying or enriching its classical formats (aka sessions)? Are you head-organising a session, presiding or editing an event and want it to leave a special footprint in the EYP history? Do you want to apply for the Power Shifts Fund 2020 and integrate energy-related issues in your event concept? If your answer is YES - then we are looking very much forward to welcoming you in Berlin for the 2nd Innovation Lab 2019 focusing on formats of our events.

What is Innovation lab 2019?

In the framework of the Power Shifts project we aim to not only support the energy discussions in the EYP network but also to provide our young volunteers with a platform for brainstorming and co-creating EYP’s future by bringing up your innovative input on various issues. After  successful Media Innovation Lab 2018 answering the question how to improve EYP’s communication activities this year we are aiming to support the innovative thinking in EYP by developing impactful concepts of event formats that go beyond classic EYP session style and truly motivate young people to active citizenship with the focus on energy (as exemplary topic). 

Innovation Lab 2019 is a 3-day incubator weekend for up to 15 EYP innovators. At this event we want to use the opportunity to identify best practices and different concepts that might have been trailed and that could be further developed, re-shaped, scaled up to increase EYP’s impact. Furthermore, we want to think of and identify different methods/methodologies that could be used that would allow us to fulfil EYP’s mission (e.g. approach to resolutions, topics, involving local community, spreading the ideas to decision makers).

Why you should apply?

  • You will participate in a professional 1-day Design-Thinking Workshop delivered by an external trainer that will help you to develop your idea
  • You will receive input of experienced EYP members and alumni who implemented successful and impactful concepts in the past
  • You will receive peer-coaching on your ideas
  • Best projects/concepts brainstormed and developed by you during the innovation lab will receive  Power Shifts Fund 2020 (up to 3.000 € per project)

Who can apply?

  • any EYP volunteer who has an idea for the impactful event/project (doesn’t necessarily need to be an EYP session) and would like to integrate any energy-related aspect (e.g. mobility, renewable energy, energy transition, relation between energy & climate change) in the content of the event
  • all Head-organisers, Presidents, Editors, NC board members of any regional, national or international event taking place from January 2020 – December 2020
  • everyone who is keen on thinking out of the box and can implement the developed idea until December 2020
