Re-energising Teens: Engaging 11-18 Year Olds in Renewable Energy

With a demonstration of solar panels, photovoltaics and a wind turbine. With Iona Benge from the Renewable Energy Roadshow.

Target audience: Leaders of youth groups

This workshop will focus specifically on how to engage 11-18 year olds in the topic of Renewable Energy and Climate change, (although the basic principles may be applicable to other age groups). Our workshop will be participative and include discussion exercises so participants can share their own experiences of engaging teenagers.
 
Present at the conference will be our 'Powerpod' - a purpose built mobile trailer fitted with solar panels, photovoltaics and its own wind turbine. These sources of green energy can be used to demonstrate fun things such as the charging of mobile phones, i-pods, and our bubble machine.
