|Energy Education Governance Schools (EGS) - information in English language|
Energy is necessary for maintaining people's health, their well.being, their lifestyles, and their economy.
Our society needs individuals with the knowledge, skills and attitudes that will allow them to use energy resources wisely.
Energy literacy is critical to Europe's economic and environmental future, and energy education must be an integral part of the school curriculum to "produce" energy literate citizens.
Energy should be a common good and EGS was born from the need to involve local communities in tackling energy issues and improving energy efficiency through a participated process.
Schools are the main actors that can contribute to involve the whole community and at the same time train the younger generations.
THE STRATEGIC OBJECTIVE
To enhance the key role of high schools in the involvement of local stakeholders (students, families, SMEs, local authorities, other schools) in the process of improving the energy efficiency and literacy of their communities.
