EGS Project

Welcome to EGS Project

EGS starts from the need to involve local communities in tackling energy issues and improving energy efficiency. The main actor contributing to involve a whole community and at the same time training the younger generations is school, and more specifically high-schools.

UBN started a Climate Detectives Project in northern Germany.

12 pilot schools are going teach climate and energy issues, to check their carbon dioxide emissions, to assess the data, to set up a climate protection plan and to realize climate protection measures. These activities are based upon our approach and material (see ).

The project started with a solar cooking action in the primary school "Juri Gagarin", Stralsund.

The pilot project “Spritsparwettbewerb” (clever driving competition), which was promoted and boosted by EGS has been and is continued also after the end of the project. In 2011 the clever driving competition was coordinated by "Landtechnik Zentrum" which is also one of the main stakeholders and supporters. The 2012 competition will be organized by the agricultural school Raumberg. So the seed which have been spread during the EGS project has grown and will bring also future fruits. Besides the schools and supporting companies, also school authorities are involved in several provinces of Austria. Mr. Hans Miglbauer (LFS Schlierbach) who proposed and initiated the project says: “I’m very happy with the development of the clever driving competition from an local initiative driven by only some to an Austrian-wide competition supported by key stakeholders. In future different schools will take the responsibility for the Spritsparwettbewerb, like this year it is done by LFZ Raumberg.”

The idea was to inspire the whole “School Family” for more energy efficiency and responsible energy consumption. But how to bring the message across? Students of the Gymnasium Gröbenzell (Germany) developed ideas in a seminar and tested them. One success was a video-contest. Read more at
