During the project, there were distributed leaflets in the participating schools with advice on ways to help save using heat, electricity and water at home.

After the lessons were conducted a survey among students found a high level of understanding of the need to lower consumption. Most of the students were ready to apply the recommendations of the rational use of energy in practice and save money in their family, pay more attention to energy classes such as Consumer Electronics and more.
