|December 2016. Festive of energy saving for school pupils in Vologda|
On December 2 in Vologda, with the support of UNDP-GEF Project, "Building energy efficiency in the North-West of Russia," the Day of energy efficiency was held, whose main objective was the involvement of the youngest citizens of our country to the culture of environmental friendliness.
The event organizers took into account that the best absorbed information is the information that children are interested in. The youngest students of the Vologda Multidisciplinary Lyceum were taught the basics of the culture of energy savings, that can protect our vulnerable world, in the form of a game. The funny characters, a boy Energosha and a girl Energoberegeniya conducted a funny quiz on energy conservation. They were permanent hosts for all, supported by the Project events of all-Russian festival of energy conservation #Togetherisbrighter, which covered a number of regional centers and some large cities in Russia.
The young students presented four teams, named by the colors of the rainbow: red, yellow, green and blue. Through the enthusiasm and fantasy of the young players in each round of the competition, the assembly hall was filled with the colors of life itself, so precious and fragile. The teams' mottos reflected not only an optimistic mood of the players and focus on winning, but the children's desire to participate in the process of energy savings. For example, the "Yellow" team had a motto: "Mini lights will always win in a canter!" They were right: they won!
The venerable jury, which included Natalia Shohireva, Director of the center for work with gifted children, Zoya Rogalyova, teacher on the subject of "Surrounding world," Alexander Moskalyov, Chief Technical Advisor on the implementation of the educational component of the UNDP-GEF Project, "Building energy efficiency in the North-West of Russia," evaluated the performances of the quiz's participants.
Interested guests: Eugenia Mazanova, head of the Department of Energy and Engineering Infrastructure of the Department of Fuel and Energy Complex and Tariff Regulation of the Vologda region; Natalia Bekryasheva, regional energy Manager in the Vologda region, and others, were watching this exciting intellectual competition.
Each of them knew perfectly how important it is to teach the children the ideas of energy savings and cheered every team. After all, the future of our planet is in the hands of today's students!
