SEYN has the following types of members:
Founding Members: the nine individual members that were suggested by the installation committee and were present in the first General Assembly and voted for approval of the internal regulation.
·Supporting Members: individuals or organizations that request to join by filling in an application form, to be approved by the Board of Directors.
Youth Members: individuals under 18 years of age that request membership by filling in a declaration of consent for membership from their legal guardian to be approved by the Board of Directors.

With rights, also come some responsibilities. So, when becoming a member, you commit to:
- Contribute to SEYN’s mission and not to take any actions that can undermine its work and principles;
- Attend the yearly General Assemblies (or delegate your vote on another member);
- Pay your membership fee by the set deadline – 31st March*
*For members joining between 1 October and 31 December, membership fees will refer to the following year (as long as the fees are paid with that period).
What does SEYN does with your contributions?
Since we are a non-profit, the membership fees are a small - yet important – component of SEYN’s funding structure as it allows us to cover some operational and fixed costs (i.e., admin, accountancy, subscriptions, and website fees).
In the future, we hope membership fees will also be able to cover our mentoring work and thus provide more support to former participants in developing their renewable energy projects.
