Since 2006, FuturEnergia, the "Energy is our Future" school programme has made a substantial contribution to enhancing and supporting science and energy education across the curriculum in schools throughout Europe. The programme goal is to raise awareness of how changes in energy consumption behaviour can contribute to protect the climate and how advanced materials such as plastics can help save energy and world’s resources.
The programme also aims at encouraging young people, across Europe, to embrace scientific careers and to continue the long standing tradition of European scientific excellence.
Through on-line chats, school visits, competitions, FuturEnergia has reached over 2.000.000 pupils across 32 EU, EFTA and candidates countries:
Austria, Belgium, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Malta, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, FYROM, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey, UK
FuturEnergia is an on-line education programme, jointly run by PlasticsEurope (the European Association of Plastics Manufacturers) and European SchoolNet (Consortium of 31 Ministries of Education across Europe).
