The ManagEnergy KidsCorner was launched in English, French, German, Italian and Spanish at the ManagEnergy Annual Conference in February 2006 with 20 EU languages to be available by mid-April 2006. It can be found online at:
It features energy and transport pages aimed at 7-11 year olds, 12-16 year olds and their teachers.
The new website will eventually be available in all 20 official EU languages, and will include a portal with hundreds of links to online energy education resources in all Member States. It will include energy-related educational materials in all twenty native languages. However, we need your help to make sure we include as many links as possible to pages in your language and in your country.
To submit links, simply complete the online form at:
These will be added to the database, covering renewable energy, energy efficiency and transport. As an indication of possible areas of interest, this already includes links to sites providing information on experiments, hands-on activities (games, animations, quizzes), lesson plans, books, CD-ROMs and videos, as well as teaching material and lesson plans. It also covers places of interest such as museums, visitor centres, mobile exhibitions, photo galleries, information centres and on-line forums.
We would be delighted to add or link to any information for children that you may already have available in your language. To acknowledge your support we are happy to include the logo of your organisation and/or the publishing organisation together with the link to the website. Again, information can be submitted by e-mail as an attachment to firstname.lastname@example.org
These new ManagEnergy schools web pages will be heavily promoted to municipalities, teaching organisations and publications across Europe, as well as through the ManagEnergy website (which now receives over 20,000 visitors per week).
So, this is a great opportunity to promote your energy agency, your website and your educational activities - and help us create Europe's leading database on energy education on the web. We look forward to hearing from you.
