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!

Oh gooooood gosh!

Its Rose here, its been a little while since I last wrote and its a little while till something else too..

We have 40 hours and 7 minuets till the launch, everyone on the panel has worked over the last year towards this, and everyone that has contributed online, this is your climax!

In less than 40 hours it will come to a head, the report will be in hard copy and we will be rushing around various parts of the country and capital telling all sorts of people precisely what we think, what we've found and what they should do, as well as listening to what they have to say in response.

I haven't got too much to update you all on, but just know that this is the final 100m!!!!

As a panel member attending since the first pilot meeting on the 9th of febuary, I have seen how much work has been put in and I commend every member of the Panel.
I have enjoyed the last 12 months so much, and I cannot calm down in anticipation for Thursday...although equally, the day after will be just as nice..as will the future for the Panel, whatever that may hold, anyway, I'm off to try and focus enough to eat my dinner,

Thank you for reading and I'm sure we could well see some of you on Thursday!

Much love, the Climate Avengers**!

**Not yet an offical title :(
