Schools will be an important component for a successful transformation of the energy system. To achieve this it will be important to get schools and teachers involved early in the process, train teachers and provide ideas how to include this issue in lessons and school life. These were some of the outcomes of the symposium "Energiewende in Schulen", that was held 21 and 22 November 2014 in Freiburg (Germany). Ecologic Institute's Senior Fellow Stephanie Wunder discussed with the visitors of the world café on how to the change energy issues in schools. The symposium documentation is available online.
The symposium was part of the three year project "Anchoring renewable energy in teacher training" that developed new tools and concepts to integrate energy education in teacher training. The Ecologic Institute contributed to the project by developing the content of educational materials and carried out training seminars. The project was lead by the UfU-Institute.
