What is SEYN
SEYN is a network of young people, building a future based on sustainable energy through a social and cooperative approach. For us energy, is not just kilowatt-hours, but an important resource for socio-economic development to promote and fuel social equality, combat poverty, help to build resilient communities and take power and future in our hands.
We promote a holistic approach towards energy, combining the social aspects and impacts, the environmental respect, the decision making based on direct democratic processes and its connection towards a truly sustainable lifestyle which includes housing, food, mobility, water, human and animal rights, culture, care, education and of course energy itself.
Our focus areas
SEYN is building a community beyond borders connected by the common values and aspirations. Through mapping this “tribe”, exchange of services, ideas, projects and forging collaboration SEYN aims to empower all current and future SEYNers.
SEYN has already completed 3 energy academies and aims to provide training to its members, supporters and communities, on a variety of themes, ranging from project development, social approach, cooperatives, alternative financing, best practices through innovative methods.
SEYN together with several partners across Europe aims to develop renewable energy projects with high social value through a cooperative approach.
SEYNers are building trustworthy partnerships with cooperatives, ethical banks, donors and sponsors, provide services on crowdfunding and alternative financing, as well as through grants and various financing possibilities, aiming to assist young people to make projects come to reality.
Our growing network consists of people with diverse skills and competencies, coming together under common values, sharing a variety of services between our members, as well as external partners, communities and organizations.
