Are you and your pupils interested in new learning opportunities in the field of energy efficiency and sustainable development? FuturEnergia school programme invites schools to take part in a number of online debates with special guests and to organise events about energy efficiency.

Have a look at FuturEnergia activities from last school year and find inspiration for your class!

> Solar Impulse has excited French and British students in two FuturEnergia school visits in February and July. The presentation of the Solar Impulse, a solar airplane which flies with the help of plastic materials, has been the main highlight for both visits, including a more general presentation on saving energy and protecting the planet.

> Pupils in Copley High School wrote grateful letters to the experts sharing their enthusiasm and inspiration: "You had managed to make us laugh, smile and learn by interacting with the students"; "the work and dedication going into the project is absolutely astonishing and I would like to be part of it"; "we really enjoyed watching the video, as it made the whole lecture really clearer".

> FuturEnergia organised four online debates from January until June 2012.
The online debates gave teachers and pupils the great opportunity to ask questions to the experts on crucial topic about energy efficiency, such as: Sustainable Buildings, Marine Litter, Bioplastics, and Plastics and Sports.
