Where there’s a will, there’s a way
The aim of the project ’’Where there’s a will, there’s a way’’ is to encourage students to think about how they can contribute to reducing energy consumption and to get rid of existing unsustainable habits. In addition it is important that students wonder where the energy they consume at home and in the school come from and how it is produced as well as investigate other possibilities for sustainable living.
The eTwinning project is directed at secondary school students aged 14 – 19 to promote rational use of energy. Based on cooperative work between the schools, they will prepare presentations, google questionnaires, drawings, essays, games, quizzes etc.
