A kick-off conference for the Education for Sustainability – Green and Energy Efficient Schools project was held on 4 of October 2017 in the County Hall in Osijek.
The city of Osijek as the Lead Partner and partners (Regional Development Agency of Slavonia and Baranja, Renewable Energy Sources Ltd., Regional Development Agency Bačka and Technical School Mileva Marić Ajnštajn) hosted the conference where partners presented the upcoming activities. The Project is based on transfer of experience from Croatian partners on the implementation of full scale energy renovation of Elementary School Ljudevit Gaj in Osijek through 3 phases to Serbian partners that are entering the first phase of renovation of Technical School Mileva Marić Ajnštajn in Novi Sad. The partners will use renewables in their renovations, thus promoting sustainable use of energy and energy efficiency in general. Besides energy renovations, partners will organize a number of educational and promotional activities and produce more detailed analyses of achieved energy savings that will be used for learning and better planning of energy efficiency and renewable energy resources initiatives in the future.
Co-financed by the Interreg IPA Cross-border Cooperation Programme Croatia-Serbia 2014-2020, the total value of the project is EUR 1,395,189.70.
