Title: YES - Young Energy Savers
Young Energy Savers (YES) created a fun cartoon animation: ‘My Friend Boo – Energy Strand’ to engage European children on energy issues. Supported by the European Commission’s fund for energy and produced by award-winning animators, the series has pioneered a new approach to creating educational programmes: messages are scientifically sound and episodes pedagogically tested. The series tells the adventures of 3 kids and magical dog Boo to find out about issues such as energy saving, renewable and sustainable transport. The episodes will be broadcast in over 14 European countries this autumn and are accompanied by teaching packs for schools and educators.
