I want to act, I want to teach, I want to participate
If the future is shaped in the present, then let's get to work.
Future Up has been present in Portuguese schools, from elementary to high school, every year since 2010, challenging students and teachers to join. It kicks off in September, at the beginning of the school year, and 29th May, energy day is the date when the ideas and projects of those who decided to act will start being acknowledged.
With the help of our volunteers, we take lessons on energy and sustainability to students from elementary to high school in Portugal.
Students are encouraged to develop projects and solutions based on the subjects of their classes and the programme: raise the awareness of the school community to behavioural changes through education and knowledge, based on the topics of sustainability: energy sources, sustainable mobility and ecological footprint, and professions linked to energy.
They can apply in three categories, based on the Sustainable Development Goals:
- Energy and Sustainable Consumption: SDG 7, 12 and 13;
- Marine Life Protection: SDG 14;
- Digital Transformation, for any of the 17 SDGs.
