Welcome to the Department for Energy and Climate Change (DECC)'s Youth Advisory Panel (YAP)'s blog. The DECC YAP is a group of young people aged between 15 and 25 from all over the UK, with a wide-range of backgrounds, from academia to activism.
Our aim is to inform everyone and anyone about DECC's activities and likewise to help DECC understand and take into account the concerns of young people. We are a medium of consultancy and conversation. Much of our work looks at finding a 'Pathway to 2050', reviewing how energy with be supplied and used in the next four decades, so follow us and join us on the journey!

Energy Pathways Survey
The next meeting of the Panel will be on Wednesday 28th July and the Panel will be discussing what they want to see in the UK energy mix from now until 2050 (and beyond!) And what’s more, the brilliant Charles Hendry – Minister for Energy, is really supportive of the work we are doing and has asked us specifically to work hard at gathering as many different view points from the Youth community as we can. We want to show Charles how much young people are involved in the issue and really care about their futures, so…
…In order to gather the thoughts, views and opinions of the Youth community we have designed a fabulous survey for you all to fill out. The survey responses will then be collected by the Panel and discussed at the next meeting, where we will then construct our own ‘Energy Pathways’ using the information YOU give us!
The survey can be found here: Click here to take survey It will take no more than 10 minutes of your time, so please do share your thought! You have until TUESDAY 27th JULY 2010 to fill it out, so it would be awesome if you could really try and fill out the survey as soon as you read this!
Please do help the Youth Panel speak up for you in the Government department by filling out the survey. We want to be able to share the views of as many young people as possible so it is really important that you join in.
And when you have finished the survey please do share it with your friends on facebook, twitter or email and spread the word to help us bring the Youth voice to your Ministers and policy officials in the Department of Energy and Climate Change.
Finally, if you have any questions about this survey or the Youth Panel in general, email us at: firstname.lastname@example.org and we will be in touch soon!
Thanks so much for all your support and we look forward to hearing from you!
From Kirsty, on behalf of the Youth Panel
