Title: Portuguese students learn to save energy and to protect the environment
The initiative „Environment: a matter to us all – let’s use energy well“ of the energy provider Energias de Portugal (EDP) seeks to raise the everyday consciousness of Portuguese students regarding climate change and energy efficiency via direct connections between energy-saving actions and their effects on the climate. The project includes an Educational Package containing various materials such as the Energy Guide, an animated film and special posters on climate change as well as special information units for teachers. The project reaches nearly 50% of all Portuguese students age 10-13, on a total of 300,000. The top four student projects are awarded 100,000 euro and are implemented directly in the schools.
