Use of Energy Effectively - Green Energy


Activities according to the written project



C1 - Green energy – future without an alternative
Only teachers will take part in this exchange in order the future leaders and trainers of student teams to be prepared.
Teachers from Czech Republic host their partners and organize a training for alternative energy sources and a discussion for the role of modern teacher in the formation of responsible characters for the future of the Universe.
We plan a meeting-talk with a member of the local Parliamentary Energy Commission. This training meeting for teachers will be held in the middle of the first project year and 3 teachers from each country. They have to clarify the basic rules of the interactive games that will be applied. For this purpose a regulation is set and the role of this method for solving eco-issues is explained. The groups will prepare their presentations on the subtopics in advance. We will also prepare the cases which aim at making the participants involved because children love playing games no matter what their age is. The game element also aims at overcoming the barrier between participants and developing creative thinking of the future discoverers, too.
The second objective of this meeting is the formation of international teams of students – the criteria for choosing a school team are defined. The training programs will also be presented so that project activities could be linked to the needs of civil education. The role that children with special educational needs could play in future project activities will be a matter of discussion, too. A skills certification program will be prepared.


C2 How to Save Energy Teachers and students meet in Turkey to hold a round table on “How to Save Energy at Home and at School?” In this exchange students will participate together with their teachers. Each team will consist of 6 students and 2 accompanying teachers at each meeting, who will support their students while discussing and solving the cases. With the help of interactive methods, students will solve cases under the title: “Consumer Society and/or the Future of the Earth”. At the end of the meeting, students will receive certificates for recognition and validation of the acquired creativity skills: creativity, active citizenship, defending a position and making quick decisions, logical and creative thinking Until the second meeting, the international teams explore the renewable energy sources in their region (country), prepare presentations and reports, solve cases and use the help of mentors from NGOs. A series of studies and reports “Energy Pathways or How Energy Reaches me” and “Ways to Save Energy” aims to define the future team for the international meeting, as well as train for a successful performance.
The duration of the preliminary activities will be 3 months. A maximum number of students will be covered on local level. The activities will be open to every student. SEN students will assist teams in gathering topic materials and in research. Last but not least, we will look for better activity efficiency for the benefit of local communities. Learning, teaching and training activities will bring together pupils and teachers from different European countries, and this will help the collaboration of people belonging to different cultures. The message that we will send is that individuality matters – each of us is valuable and unique despite the fact that we come from different countries. In the end, differences are what make us unique. We will try to teach our students to think creatively and critically for issues related to alternative energy sources.
The participation in such a project will give our students the opportunity to think and make decisions for a fraction of a second – a valuable skill in the real world. What is more, the short exchange of teachers, students and the mixed mobility will be an excellent opportunity to increase the motivation to learn language and improve language skills through practical use in real life. Another added value is the use of modern teaching and learning methods that include the promotion of teamwork under the guidance of specialized teachers.
During these meetings, students will learn that they can and should participate actively in the social life of the society they live in or at European level. In the long run, it is expected that they will develop a sense of active civil society and a democratic culture. Student families will also be involved in the activities as indirect beneficiaries


C3 Our Green Future visualization of future life on Earth Teachers and students meet in Poland to show their presentations, pictures and posters on the topic.

The teams will visit a photovoltaic and a wind park in the given region. At the end of the meeting, students will receive certificates for recognition and validation of the acquired creativity skills.
The preparation for the meetings is accompanied by reports on “Recycling as a Way for Saving Energy” and films for “Child Contribution to Recycling”. Students, who have already taken part in the first training meeting, train other students and upload their observations and ideas on project’s site. Students and their teachers will make pictures of sites showing human crime against nature. They will make “Save the Earth” exhibitions, which will turn into a cry for help. They will also disseminate hand-made postcards on the topic in their school and in other schools in the region. The preliminary activities will last for 3 months. A maximum number of students will be covered on local level.
SEN pupils will be stimulated to take part in making the postcards.

A photo exhibition, prepared by students on the topic “For a Clean World”, will be presented at the conference, too. The preparation of all meetings is accompanied by a series of research of the renewable energy sources in my region, which have to set the future team for the international meeting, as well as the final product.
Each school will hold an essay competition in English on “Everything is Energy” and “The Earth is Alive”. The best ones with be awarded and will be provided with long-term distribution through their publication in an essay collection.
