European Energy Saving Award – Europe

noviembre 11, 2010

Ahorro Energia EuropeoEnergy saving can be learnt at school and over the last two years the IUSES project proved it. The European Energy Saving Award, thought of to promote an intelligent use of energy sources and sustainable mobility among high schools students and teachers, saw many young European citizens involved. Students and whole classes from the 12 participating countries, besides taking part in training activities, have planned and directly experimented several different ways to save energy, enthusiastically taking up the challenge and competing for the award. Tomorrow in Trieste, within the IUSES final conference, the three best European projects will be crowned top winners of the competition and awarded their prizes. On the same occasion, also the Italian and Slovenian winners of the national awards will receive their national prizes. Most significantly, winning students and schools were able to reduce their energy consumption, each using the means they had available and actively involving their communities. The winners will be rewarded for their efforts during the final conference. Martin Eibl – project officer at EACI, the Executive Agency for Competition and Innovation – Fabio Tomasi – the project coordinator – and Ilaria Pierdomenico – representing Welcome Office Friuli Venezia Giulia – will be handing out the prizes to the winners.
