Energ’y Citoyennes is committed to children: an introduction to renewable energies
Providing schools in the Grenoble metropolitan area with a beautiful solar roof is the objective set by Energ’y Citoyennes since 2016. To support this project, the company’s volunteers organize activities in the schools concerned around the theme of renewable energies. The City-zen Days were an opportunity to organize a new educational workshop in the library of the Jardin de Ville to raise awareness of energy issues among the youngest.
Armed with a solar panel, Fabienne Mahrez, a volunteer at Energ’y Citoyennes, had prepared a fun and interactive presentation on energies for children. Through quiz questions, children were introduced to fossil and renewable energies. They also had the opportunity to observe a solar panel as closely as possible and learn its composition and operation.
Ethan and Quentin participated in this workshop and explain what they learned from it:
Energ’y Citoyennes not only installs solar roofs, but also raises awareness of the issues of energy transition and renewable energies by intervening in schools. Intended for students in fourth and fifth grade, these activities take place in schools that have a photovoltaic installation on their roofs. But the company wishes to pursue these actions by targeting all children from all schools in the city in order to make the energy transition a concern for all.
