Transcript of Copy of Energy conservation

Unfortunately, our world is really ill. We are destroying our planet. But everyone can do basic things and save our environment.
Did You Know?
Coal – the most-used fuel for generating electricity globally (37%)
Oil – generates about 40% of world energy; 20 countries produce 95% of world oil
Gas – natural gas is produced from most oil fields and is used for 16% of world electricity
Just 2% of our nation's electricity comes from clean, sustainable sources like wind, solar and other renewable technologies.

We can make a difference!
Our Posters:
We, students from Belarus, Nigeria, Pakistan and USA, WILL make a difference!
Our Slogans:
Resource and Energy Saving in School
Resource and Energy Saving in School
Learning Circle Group:
Global Issues:
(Middle/High School)
Sponsoring Teacher:

Sponsor School:
Lyceum of Novopolotsk,
Goal Of The Project:
to raise people`s awareness of
the global problem of resource
and energy deficit.
Resource and Energy Saving -
avoiding, delaying, or decreasing
the use of energy or raw materials required for the production of new products through source reduction, reuse, recycling, composting, or energy recovery.
(definition by U.S. Environmental Protection Agency)
Why to Conserve
Energy and Resources?
We have limited resources available on earth
Our demand for energy and resources is increasing day- by- day
It is possible that someday, most of fuels and other resources will be exhausted, and we will have to switch over to alternate energy, or life will be impossible.

Like any other institution, schools consume large quantities of materials and generate significant waste (including food waste) every day. Through source reduction, green purchasing, recycling, and composting, schools can further reduce their costs and environmental impacts, complementing efforts to improve energy efficiency.
Schools can make their contribution to energy and resource saving by encouraging resource reduction and the reuse of products and materials, as well as composting and recycling wastes.
Natural resources can be organized into two groups… Non-renewable – resources exist in limited supplies and cannot be replaced once they have been used. Non-renewable resources include coal, oil and natural gas. Renewable – resources will not run out so they can be used again and again. Renewable resources include wind, sun and water.
Students and teachers:
minimize energy use
switch off unnecessary lights when you go out of the classroom
in computer labs, use standby mode when computers are not used
use digital copies of textbooks and other content
print both sides of the paper (if printing is unavoidable)
ride a bicycle to school, or go on foot
put unnecessary paper and plastic bags into recycle bins
use water efficiently
Recycling plastic saves twice as much energy as burning it in an incinerator
Recycling of one aluminum can saves enough energy to run a TV for 3 hours
Recycling of one glass container saves enough energy to light a 100-watt bulb for 4 hours
Each ton of paper recycled can save 17 trees, 380 gallons of oil, three cubic yards of landfill space, 4,000 kilowatts of energy, 7,000 gallons of water and 60 pounds of air pollution

Did you know?
Did you know?

School Administration:
identify those areas that use the most energy and resources
design and implement a resource and electricity consumption system for the whole school community
get everyone involved
raise people`s awareness of the problem of resource and energy deficit
increase everyone's understanding of the benefits of energy efficiency
estimate consumption and emissions and take the challenge

Technical Staff:
Check the age and condition of your major appliances. It may be possible to replace them with a more energy-efficient model
Assess the heating and cooling systems. Determine if replacements are justified, or whether you should retrofit them to make them work more efficiently to provide the same comfort (or better) for less energy.
Clean or replace furnace, air-conditioner, and heat-pump filters
Survey your incandescent lights for opportunities to replace them with compact fluorescents. These new lamps can save three-quarters of the electricity used by incandescents. The best targets are 60-100W bulbs used several hours a day.
Rope caulk very leaky windows.
Resource and Energy Saving Around the World
Don’t litter, it makes the world bitter!

Don’t be a drag, reuse your bags!

When you refuse to reuse, it’s your Earth you abuse!
Assume how much you consume
Save today, and your children will thank you tomorrow!
Now, it`s not too late to think about the future of our planet! Start saving today!
Are you aware of the problem of resource and energy deficit?
Do you personally save energy and resources? How?

What events are organized in your school to raise public awareness?
On what subjects do you study this program?
Porter Ridge High School,
Yes, people have become much more aware and conservative about how they use their energy and resources.
We do have a variety of information, and it is pushed heavily toward students.

Mott Hall Bronx School,
Most of us that took the survey are
aware of the problems of resource and energy deficit!

The Paragon School & College,
Being Citizens of a Developing Country , where we are continuously facing Energy deficit and bearing hours long electricity load shedding multiple times during a single day, we would say, Definitely, We know!

Energy saved at the present is put to work in the future.
Wesley High School,
Yes, we are aware of the problem
Porter Ridge High School
We save energy by turning off the lights when not in use and unplug things as well.

We save energy by recycling drink containers and paper.

Mott Hall Bronx School
Most of us personally try to save energy and resources.

To do this we:
Turn off the lights
Unplug electronics
Take public transportation (many of us take buses to get to school)
Recycle water bottles and plastic bags

The Paragon School & College
Yes, we personally make it our top priority to try at every step in our daily routines to check our use of energy and resources i.e using electricity and water wisely and with constraint. Use of paper and other such stationery materials is also kept in check and utmost effort is put in trying to recycle used stuff :by finding alternate uses for the used material.

Wesley High School
Mott Hall Bronx
Our school partners with buildOn, a community service program that helps in the community. Lots of students participate.
To raise awareness in school, we have meetings after school to speak about saving energy and other resources.
Porter Ridge High School
There are no specific events held in our school, but there is a Recycling Club. They help raise awareness of the importance of recycling.
The school also has recycling bins for beverage containers in the hallways throughout the school and other recycling bins in classrooms.

The Paragon School & College
Celebration of Earth Day.
Annual Recycling Activity – making different Models.
Lectures by guest speakers.
Worksheets in syllabus.

Wesley High School
In our school there are no events organized to raise public awareness about resource and energy saving.
Porter Ridge High School
In some science classes they inform students about natural resources and different types of energy. They also inform students about reusable and non-reusable resources as well as how people need to limit the use of non-reusable resources.
Science classes also inform students about new sources of energy, such as solar, wind, and water energies
Mott Hall Bronx School
History (Global & US)
Earth Science
Living Environment

The Paragon School & College
There are no special subjects on resource and energy savings but but it is thought in basic science, basic technology and agricultural science.
