The challenge of schools on energy saving
On June 5, 2019 at the Palapergola Sports Hall, in Potenza, the closing ceremony of Schools4energy, the Local Living Lab of the Potenza pilot, took place.
The event concluded an innovative educational experience that involved four schools of the municipality of Potenza ("Don L. Milani", "G. Leopardi", "L. La Vista" and "A. Busciolano") in a friendly competition for promoting more aware energy behaviour.
Within School4energy, the theme of energy saving was treated creatively by choosing different expressive tools and languages, producing drawings, videos, posters and video games.
The event was animated by Città della Scienza, ENEA and Legambiente, which involved students in interactive educational activities on energy and environmental issues.
During the final ceremony, the young winners of the various theme categories and the school that achieved maximum energy savings by implementing the selected good behavioral practices were awarded.
Moreover, the Municipal Administration established with a Council Resolution to give back to the competing schools 50% of the energy bill savings obtained thanks to their good behaviours.
