Teaching them young
How is energy is generated? How much does it cost? How does it affect the environment?
These are extremely important topics today, and are no longer just the domain of engineers and industry experts.
ElectroCity was developed by Draft in New Zealand to increase public awareness – particularly among students – of the basic “common knowledge” of these topics. That is, the general terms and concepts of the industry and the dilemmas that go along with them.
The goal is not to provide students with a sophisticated understanding of the controversies in the various energy debates. Rather, it’s to spark an interest and lay an unbiased foundation for later learning. Great to see big corporate companies (especially Energy one’s) putting some money behind education of the environment.
