Title: Use the sun
In the realm of this youth project, very simple measures are undertaken to learn efficiency optimization and sustainable resource utilization. For example, the use of solar energy reduces electricity costs and collecting rain water for cleaning tasks saves drinking water. The youths learn to efficiently handle available resources and to apply energy saving tips. Because the youths employ such simple tips every day in the project, their behavior become a habit and is also automatically used at home and other places. Likewise the topics are discussed and propagated among friends and acquaintances.
