ESMES in Lebanon celebrates the closure of the schools contest on sustainable energy behaviours
June 26, 2023
The students are future professionals involved in energy buildings’ sector: to raise their awareness of the importance of sustainable energy behavior and reduce school energy consumption, the Lebanese Center for Energy Conservation (LCEC) organised a gamification-based contest for five public schools in Lebanon as part of the ESMES project:
Shakib Irslan Public School;
Barouk Public School;
Majadel Public School;
Hosh El Omara Public School;
Ain Jarfa Public School.
The energy teams, in the schools, with the support of LCEC and in collaboration with the Lebanese Ministry of Education, diagnose energy patterns to improve the behavior of students and school staff.
On June 22 and 23, 2023, all the schools participated in the closure of the contest event! More than 100 students, teachers and representatives of institutions attended the event, together with the team ICU, the project coordinator and the team of LCEC.
Part of the event was dedicated to games dealing with Energy Efficiency (EE) and Renewable Energy (RE); an exhibition was organized to showcase the paintings made by the students during the visual art contest. Students of each school presented their work done during the contest and what they have learned about energy!
