schools all over Europe
For more than 10 years Energy Challenges have been organized in the Netherlands and in the past 7 years in Belgium, Germany, Denmark and the United Kingdom. Meanwhile also in Spain, Slovenia and Turkey. More than 250 schools have now participated in the Netherlands and internationally 144. All those schools have saved a considerable amount of energy, thus lowering the school’s energy bill.
Energy Challenges is a campaign for group 7 and 8 of elementary school and the junior classes of secondary schools. Together with their teachers, students look for ways to save energy. Energy Challenges challenges them to do research to find ways to save energy within their school. Not by making all kinds of interventions in the building, but by becoming aware of their own behavior and thereby changing that behavior in a sustainable way.
