"Alterenergy promotes Energy issues in schools by ENERGIOCHI”

The Regione Abruzzo promotes Energy issues in schools by Energiochi contest (Energames). The contest ENERGIOCHI is financed by the Abruzzo Region and carried on in collaboration with Education Ministry, Regional School Office and L’Aquila University (Training Sciences Faculty). It targets the Abruzzo Region schools.

 The objective, since 2005, is to promote the knowledge of energy saving criteria, renewable energy sources, and to raise awareness on the importance that everyday behaviours have on the environment, as well as to foster sustainable consumption oriented behaviours. The children involved were asked to describe the most important topics of our planet thorough different works which were divided into contest, (poetry, music, painting, short films..). More that 10.000 students (from 3 up to 18 years old) are involved every year. All the works are evaluated by the Official Energiochi Commission and more that 1300 are the students awarded each year. On 2011 Energiochi has been nominated in the learning section of the Sustenergy Award.
