Students get Energy Smart
The secrets of sustainable living have been captured in a short film prepared by Aberdeen school pupils and university students.
Energy Smart, which is aimed at school leavers and students, provides simple advice on how to maintain a tenancy in a sustainable way, with tips on energy-saving behaviour resulting in savings on energy bills.
The film, written by and starring Bucksburn Academy pupils and Aberdeen University students, was launched at the Re-thinking Energy Conference hosted by Bucksburn Academy earlier this month.
Energy Smart was funded by Aberdeen City Council and EU Interreg IVB NWE Programme through the Mitigation in Urban Areas: Solutions for Innovative Cities (MUSIC) Project. The MUSIC Project aims to reduce carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions by 50% by 2030 in five partner cities in North West Europe. In Aberdeen, six projects to reduce CO2 emissions have been developed, one of which included this video on sustainable living.
