The Renewable Energy Directive establishes an overall policy for the production and promotion of energy from renewable sources in the EU. It requires the EU to fulfil at least 20% of its total energy needs with renewables by 2020 – to be achieved through the attainment of individual national targets. Given this broader context, we have established this partnership with a view to raising the awareness of students about the necessity to increase the use of renewable sources of energy, which is expected to increase by 7% in the next 10 years all over Europe (according to the revised Renewable Energy Directive). We want them to gain an in-depth knowledge of how these sources of energy are used, make them experiment with them through STEAM and PBL, draw their attention to the benefits and drawbacks of all energy sources and provide a context for critical and creative thinking, in which students assess, research and analyse, produce tangible outputs collaboratively.
The project aims to set the grounds for the 5 partner countries to cooperate and share practices in the area of renewable energy resources and sustainable production and consumption through activities designed for students which are meant to:

  • develop their understanding about scientific concepts and processes in the production of sustainable energy
  • develop their overall awareness about alternative sources of energy and how their usage can be enhanced
  • improve skills and competences through interdisciplinary projects in the STEM field
  • improve collaboration, team work and communication skills of students and teachers
  • develop soft skills – critical and analytical thinking, creativity – in order to foster students’ employability
  • enable teachers to share school models and practices in the areas of STEM, ICT, coding, robotics that can be transferred into their schools
  • improve self-awareness and intercultural awareness of young European citizens, as well as promoting European citizenship and EU policies in the field of renewable energy usage.
