ENERGE at the EU Sustainable Energy Week

On October 22nd 2021, five members of the ENERGE Project Team held an online session as part of the EU Sustainable Energy Week Extended Programme. It was a great session filled with insights into various aspects of the ENERGE Project. 

Its purpose was to present several actions in order to educate and engage students of our demonstration schools to be more sustainable. Moreover, the speakers had the opportunity to introduce a replicability planning providing means for other schools to adopt this approach after the project has ended.

This presentation mainly focused on :

  • Understanding student’s behaviors
  • Teaching them how to change their behaviors to be more sustainable
  • Informing them of the impacts of their changes in behavior
  • How these practices can be combined together in a package to offer long term effects
