Intelligent Energy Day in Częstochowa, Poland

25 June 2014

Obok tekstuMany residents of Częstochowa – the city actively involved in the MESHARTILITY project - and students of primary and secondary schools could find out how much they know about green energy and their impact on the climate during Intelligent Energy Day organized on the 9th of June on Biegański Square.

The Office of the Municipal Engineer, together with the the  Association of Polish Scouting Region  Silesia and Fortum Power & Heat Poland, has prepared a number of competitions for preschoolers, students and senior citizens. The youngest inhabitants of Częstochowa willingly created works of art, which common theme was ecology. A lot of fun brought them the game of keeping the colorful balls on the scarf. While playing the Wheel of Fortune participants answered questions about the waste segregation, renewable energy sources and methods of saving energy. Winners received awards, among others ecological bags, pens, lanyards and games related to environmental protection.

During the festival performances of students from educational institutions involved in the project Euronet 50/50 MAX were held, presenting their efforts - as well as finished and planned activities -aimed at reducing the consumption of energy and water in the form of interesting scenes, poems, slogans, etc.

The energy quiz attracted great attention and interest. One of the teams, the one composed of the Deputy Mayor Mirosław Soboraka, Director for Production and Distribution of Fortum Power & Heat Poland Sp z o.o. Piotr Górnik, Head of the Department of Environmental Protection, Agriculture and Forestry in the city of Częstochowa Andrzej Szczerba and Councillors of Częstochowa Andrzej Szczerba and Janusz Danek, demonstrated extensive environmental knowledge and thus defeated the team of students from the Technical Education School Complex.

Deputy Mayor of Częstochowa handed awards to the winners of the earlier announced photo competition entitled "Photo with the energy in the background", as well as to the authors of the best slogans promoting energy and water saving, the best eco-themed crossword "EKOGŁÓWKA - the ecological crossword" and the winners of the artistic contest "My way to save energy." All works submitted to the competitions could have been seen at special exhibition organized on the central square.

The aim of this event was to develop ecological attitude and behavior among the residents and to raise their awareness of renewable energy and energy efficiency. Municipal Intelligent Energy Days are organized by all the cities which are signatories of the Covenant of Mayors, which was joined by Częstochowa in November 2012.
