Get involved at your School Pupils can play an important role in reducing greenhouse gas emissions at their school by reducing their emissions from energy use. They can work with school administrators to: increase energy efficiency, reduce school's greenhouse gas emissions by using green power and develop school thermal isolation Spread the Word They can tell their families and friends that energy efficiency is good for their homes and good for the environment because it lowers greenhouse gas emissions and air pollutions. By telling 5 people and together we can help our homes help us all.

9 PUPILS CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE Pupils can make a difference in environment protection and energy saving at their schools Pupils have the opportunity to learn about energy and the relation between energy use, the environment, and our options Pupils can help their parents and communities to protect the environment and save the energy Pupils can lead adults in doing the right thing about environment and energy NOW

10 What Schools Sh can do? Schools are perfect venues for capacity building and training the next generation about environmental protection, climate changes, energy resources and energy savings. Educating students about environment and the link between energy efficiency and the environment, empowers them to make a real difference. They can make a difference in environment protection and energy savings at their school and help their parents and communities protect the environment and save the energy. They have the opportunity to learn about the environment, climate changes and the relation between energy uses. They can save energy at school and take their knowledge home and to the y gy g community.

18 Topic 1 The Role of Schools and Students on Environmental Protection Be part of our common action to protect our living environment; Use the opportunity to learn about energy and environment interactively, practically and excitingly; Use practical knowledge and skills to empower yourselves and your communities to take action in benefit of a common and universal good; Get involved in protecting a common and universal value by doing little things around you.

19 Topic 2 Environmental Protection (1) Environmental protection is a practice of protecting the environment, on individual, organizational or governmental level, for the benefit of the natural environment and (or) humans This educational pack for primary schools looks at the importance of natural resources, energy, air, water, soil and including food. Schools and teachers environmental protection project topics can use in students awareness increasing. Environmental and Energy project topics is compatible with school programs.

Water s Land Land Biodiversity Biodiversity Schools and teachers Pollution cam from Emissions (transportation, energy,..) Waste water Pesticides Waste Environmental can protected and improved Reduce emissions Natural sources using Energy saving using Efficiently energy using Renewable energy sources using Waste reducing and recycling Reducing pesticides use Water saving Forestation Reducing noise f l d lk Your family instead car use, some times may to walk You can save the energy Instead plastic bag you can use letter or textile bag and contribute environmental protection

21 Topic 3 Climate Change (1) Climate change is a change of weather over periods of time that range from decades to millions of years. Climate change may be limited to a specific region, or may occur across the whole Earth. Climate change. Climate change generally known as global warming". Of most concern in these anthropogenic factors is the increase in CO 2 levels due to emissions from fossil fuel fossil combustion and followed by aerosols (particulate matter in the atmosphere). Other factors, including land use, ozone depletion, animal agricultureand deforestation, affecting climate, microclimate, and measures of climate variables.

22 Topic 3 Climate Change (2) What is Climate System? Climate and Weather Climate Whether Cycles in Nature Atmosphere Oceans Land Ice Biosphere

23 Climate change, What it is? Greenhouse Gas Emissions Greenhouse Effect Global Warming Topic 3 Climate Change (3) When Do You Send Greenhouse Gases into the Air? Greenhouse Effect, Climate Change, and Global Warming Greenhouse Effect Climate s come a Long Way! Greenhouse effect, Can we change the Climate? What are the largest Sources of Greenhouse Gas emissions in Kosovo? We can make a Difference!

24 Topic 4 Energy Saving (1) Energy saving is the activity of reducing the amount of energy producing resources people use and deplete in the daily course of their lives. Energy Saving is not to use energy when you don t need it. Always you can save energy in school, your home, save money on your energy bills. Energy saving can contribute on the decreasing of using fossil fuel energy sources, environmental protection increasing and climate changes decreasing. There is a limited quantity of nonrenewable energy resources on Earth, so it is essential to save the current supply and use renewable sources that will be available in the future. By making some behavioral changes, individuals and organizations can decrease their consumption of heat and power to save energy. Specific energy saving activities include, but are not limited to, using more efficient light bulbs; lowering heating system thermostats in the home and office; reducing the use of cars and other petroleum reliant vehicles; and reusing materials such as plastic bags and water bottles.

25 Topic 4 Energy Saving (2) Way to Save Energy and Start t Cutting Costs Turn lights and equipment off when not in use. Turn the screen off on the computer terminal at work when you will not be using it for a while. Wash full loads when using the washing machine or clothes dryer. When purchasing home appliances buy the energy efficient types. When the present bulbs burn, replace with electronic ones and save the energy. Electronic bulb is five times more efficient as incandescent. Turn the water heater setting down a few degrees and reduce the amount of electricity you use. A typical home uses 30% or more of the electric bill on hot water. Use less hot water around the house saves energy too Ride a bicycle or walk to work when the weather is temperate. Monitor your energy saving, save energy for same commodity and pay less money!

26 Topic 5 Energy Efficiency (1) Energy conservation is achieved through hefficient i energy use, in which h case energy use is decreased while achieving a similar outcome, or by reduced consumption of energy services. Efficient i energy use, sometimes simply called energy efficiency, i is using less energy to provide the same level of energy service. Efficient energy use is achieved primarily by means of a more efficient technology or processes rather than by changes in individual behaviour.

27 Topic 5 Energy Efficiency (2) This educational pack for primary schools looks at the importance of insulating a home that allows a building to use less heating and cooling energy to achieve and maintain a comfortable temperature, installing electronic bulb instead of incandescent lights to attain the same level of illumination and to use efficiently home appliances. Ways to use Energy Efficiency and Start Cutting Costs Energy efficient buildings Industrial processes and Transportation Home appliances Energy efficiency measures could reduce energy needs and help controlling global emissions of greenhouse gaseous, decrease global warming and improve air quality. Energy efficiency offer less energy using, same commodity and less money

28 Topic 6 Renewable Energy Sources Renewable energy isenergy which h comes from natural resources such as sunlight, wind, rain, tides, and geothermal, heat, which are renewable (naturally replenished). Renewable energy resources include solar energy, geothermal energy, energy from the wind or waves, energy from tides and energy from biomass. S d d d d h l f bl i Student need to understand the role of renewable energy sources in environmental protection and climate changes decreasing
