Energy consumption - what can we do?
Author: Carlos Cachado
Description: The GP starts with a general discussion between the students and the teacher on what can be done to save energy and reduce consumption. Following that, the students watch a video (“Energy! Let’s save it”) created by the European Commission to raise awareness. This video serves as inspiration for the students to create energy-saving plans for their school and possibly for their own homes. They have to prepare a poster presentation to introduce their concrete ideas to the fellow students, which is followed by composing a formal letter to the headmaster addressing the issue and suggesting ways to reduce the energy consumption of the school. Once the energy-saving actions have been implemented, the students need to make notes about energy consumption by having access to the electricity bills of the school. These results are compared with the energy bills of the previous months and years in order to see the savings.
