Final conference of the ES-GEES project

The Priority axis 2 ES GEES project held its final conference and presented accomplishments in Novi Sad on 13 December.

ES GEES, shortened for Education for Sustainability – Green and Energy Efficient Schools, is dedicated to finding the right approach in implementing energy efficient measures and combining them with renewable energy sources. In the past 30 months, partners contributed to reconstruction of two schools in Osijek and Novi Sad and organized a campaign that informed Croatia and Serbia’s cross-border community about renewable energy sources.

In particular, partners raised the energy efficiency of two public schools by installing a photovoltaic power plant in the elementary school Ljudevit Gaj in Osijek, allowing the school to produce clean energy and generate savings. In Novi Sad’s Technical school “Mileva Maric-Einstein” partners installed a pellet heating system, which will heat the school greenhouse and also showcase principles of circular economy to students.

Partners of ES GEES made students aware of advantages of using renewable energy sources in the most practical way. By reconstructing two schools, ES GEES ensured that their achievements remain visible for generations of students to see. The final conference, held in the Technical school “Mileva Maric- Einstein”, was a chance to reflect on their story.

The conference was opened by representatives of partner institutions. In addition, two students and the school’s professor Maria Malešević Čučulis shared their experiences of participating in the project and reflected on new facilities introduced by ES GEES.

The conference was closed with the screening of the promotional movie, which shows the story of ES GEES and their achievements:
