Why PlayEnergy?

PlayEnergy was created 12 years ago in order to introduce young people to that fundamental good which illuminates and enhances our lives: energy. In all schools the project promotes the scientific approach, the attention to the environment and the need for an intelligent and responsible use of electricity. Speaking about energy with young people means spreading a culture of shared responsibility based on scientific facts but also taking care of their own future, their career, i.e. their world.
