Schools and Colleges

Learning about the importance of using energy sparingly and how we can do this in practice is a vital educational goal, and children should be made aware of these issues as early as possible. In Finland, topics related to the efficient use of energy and the advantages of renewable energy sources are taught as part of the national curricula throughout basic education and in upper secondary schools.

Learning about saving energy can be fun!

Many special educational materials have been produced to help teachers provide their pupils with information about energy production and energy use, by applying a variety of motivating methods.

This website includes teaching materials, case studies and ideas for class visits designed to give pupils an interest in saving energy and using renewable energy. We also present examples of related materials and ideas already used in Finnish schools and kindergartens. We hope they will inspire teachers to cover these important issues in their classes and courses in enjoyable and motivating ways.
