During the course of teaching materials for primary and secondary schools, the UNDP-GEF Project "Building energy efficiency in the North-West of Russia" has developed training materials to conduct homerooms on the subject "Fundamentals of energy saving" for the students of 5th–9th grades: workbook and teacher's guide.
The publication of new textbooks will provide all stages of secondary education with the materials. Now every school that wants to organize the process of continuous education of students on energy conservation, will be able to use training program and materials created by the Project. The provision of extracurricular lessons according methodological materials will help to develop in students the right attitude to a culture of saving from an early age.
The use of teaching materials at the lessons on energy savings will help teachers to plan lessons properly and successfully implement a training course developed by the Project.
