Virtual Youth Energy Academy 11 – 17 October 2021

About RRC.AP

The Regional Resource Centre for Asia and the Pacific (RRC.AP)  is an outreach centre of the Asian Institute of Technology that assists countries to advance their environment and sustainable development goals through the provision of capacity building, knowledge and information sharing, policy advice and research in the thematic areas of Climate Change, Air Pollution, and Waste and Resource Management.

After the consecutive success of the two editions of YEA in 2019 and 2020, the Regional Resource Centre for Asia and the Pacific at the Asian Institute of Technology (AIT-RRCAP) and the Sustainable Energy Youth Network (SEYN), with the support of the Regional Project Energy Security and Climate Change Asia-Pacific of the Konrad Adenauer Foundation (KAS-RECAP) are hosting the third edition in 2021.

In light of the ongoing covid-19 pandemic, this year’s YEA will also be held virtually. Nevertheless, the YEA organizing team will strive to deliver a unique, fun, and engaging programme.

Virtual Youth Energy Academy


The Youth Energy Academy aims to continuously increase the implementation potential of projects and foster replicability across the Asian region. More specifically the Virtual YEA aims to:
1.    Raise awareness about the need to shift to DRE approaches and the role of citizens in this transition;
2.   Promote the involvement of young people in DRE by sharing inspiring stories and projects led by other young people;
3.  Equip young people with the hard and soft skills and tools to design, organize and build small scale sustainable energy projects;
4.  Foster leadership, entrepreneurship, and a “can-do” attitude, by encouraging young people to develop and apply skills in developing projects in their communities;
5.  Increase the potential of project idea implementation after the Academy;
6.  Promote the replication and ripple effect across the region by equipping YEA alumni to train other people in small scale, decentralized renewable energy approaches; and

7. Further build the YEA network of young people in the region
