YOUNG PEOPLE: For your future, learn all you can!


Here’s a listing of some useful and interesting websites on energy issues and projects for students. There are many important ways that students can actively contribute to a healthier environment by making better energy choices (and getting parents and family members to do the same!!).

You can check our Links Page for additional resources.


This is a national/international campaign by the national Earth Day Network 2000 organization to get the country to move towards cleaner energy resources. Go to their website above, and click to the “Clean Energy NOW” page. You will eventually find a “Campuses” button on the left, which will get you involved with other (mostly college level) students and projects.



Fostering energy efficiency in all segments of the community is the best way to protect the environment and to prolong the life of our energy resources.


That’s why the Alliance to Save Energy developed Green Schools–a comprehensive program designed for K-12 schools that creates energy awareness, enhances experiential learning, and saves schools money on energy costs.

  • Students benefit from hands-on lessons in energy conservation and efficiency that will pay off now and in the future. 
  • Schools benefit from considerable cost savings, curriculum support, cross-functional team building, and community involvement.
