Educational and award programme for school groups to reduce CO2 eEmissions
The Climate Watch programme was designed, initiated and implemented by the National Society of Conservationists (NSC) in Hungary. The aim of the Climate Watch project was to increase the knowledge of primary and secondary school pupils on energy efficiency and energy saving. Thus, with the involvement of its local member associations as well as the media, NSC aimed at reaching and involving schools. The project started in 2007 and was very successful as 52 school teams including teachers and more than 200 students registered to participate, and then completed the programme. School groups received information (in the form of a booklet) on the basis of which they observed and evaluated energy use in their schools, and came up with suggestions and proposals to make it more efficient. Best efforts were awarded at a public ceremony held in the Natural History Museum in Budapest at the end of the project.
