The German Youth Panel on Education for Sustainable Development (youpaN) is the official body for youth to participate in the ESD implementation process in Germany. Founded in 2017 it was established as a measure for implementing UNESCO GAP ESD in Germany and it is part of the German National Platform for ESD. All members are part of one of the six ESD expert forums. Additionally, the Panel organises its own conferences and members participate in other relevant events for ESD stakeholders. This process shows how young people can meaningfully participate in a national ESD strategy and influence political processes. The effective support youpaN is receiving is important to enable this work. However, the panel still has to face some challenges such as trying to fit into processes which are not designed for young volunteers or trying to better represent the general society among its membership.
