Welcome to our website. Our project is Erasmus+ project for school education. We are 5 countries from various parts of Europe - Slovakia, Greece, Italy, Spain and Turkey. We decided to work with our students on very interesting environmental topic and think togehter how we can help to save the life.
On this website you can find all our outcomes and opinions.

ISTITUTO COMPRENSIVO DI S. TERESA DI RIVA- ENERGY
Energy is the capacity
of a physical system to performwork. Energy exists in several forms such asheat,kineticor mechanical energy, light, electrical, or other forms.
There are Non-renewable and Renewable energies
The Non-renewable ones are:
Coal is one the major energy source in the world, it comes from mines and mountains.
Oil is the main source of energy about the world and
it comes from far underground.
gas is found in most of
the world where “natural” means a gas
formed by natural processes in the earth.
Nuclear energy uses the power of the atom to create steam
power which is used to generate electricity. Nuclear power plants produce waste
dangerous to human health and environment.
The Renewable ones are:
Windpower is a source of
energy for electricity production
Solar power means energy from the sun, it’s used to
Water power is one of the oldest sources of energy in
human history, it’s also called hydropower.
The term “geothermal”
means “heat from the earth”, it’s very
efficient and doesn’t hurt the
environment and the sources occur near the volcanoes.
Energy world problems
The world’s population
is growing very quickly, most of the energy used today is still based on
burning fossil fuels; the traditional energy sources are going to
extinguish and unfortunately people are wasteful with their energy use.
It's hard to imagine life without electricity. In our
homes, we rely on it to power our lights, appliances, and electronics. Many of
us also use electricity to provide our homes with hot water, heat, and air
The best solution is to use a more responsible “Mix”
of renewable and non-renewable energy
Moreover, if we can cut waste use of energy by 50%,
all sources will last longer.
Let’s see how we can make a difference. The house is a
place where a lot of energy is used and
most of the time wasted.
Here are some tips:
·Close doors and
windows to keep heat inside the house.
·Make sure to turn
the lights off when you are not in a room
un-plug all the electronic devices
·Don’t leave the
water tabs open if not necessary.
·Use led bulbs
instead of the traditional ones
batteries instead of disposable ones
·Install solar and
photovoltaic panels on the roof of your house
