Energy Conservation Campaign

The Green Energy Act is clear that everyone must reduce greenhouse gas emissions to mitigate the effects of climate change. Schools must do their part by creating a new culture where behaviours reflect positive environmental stewardship. A school-wide, targeted Energy Conservation Campaign is necessary to raise awareness and encourage a new way of doing things.

Canadians are far too wasteful – we really don’t need to use so much! Each of us can make a big difference by thinking about our habits and making changes, starting today.

What should we do to conserve Energy?

Schools are encouraged to use the helpful resources available on UGShare to launch an Energy Conservation Campaign and inspire staff and students and the entire school community to make a difference. View the poster – Tips on How to Save Energy at School and our Energy Conservation PowerPoint Presentation.
