As part of its commitment to environmental education on the transition to carbon neutrality and the promotion of clean energy, ENGIE Energía Perú presented on March 16 the project “Green Educational Bus: The Magic of Electricity”, which will reach different public schools in Metropolitan Lima and Chilca-Cañete -in a first stage- with educational material and interactive dynamics on climate change and its effects; and the important role of energy for the future.
The “Green Educational Bus” will travel to schools where, in a safe environment, students from 2nd to 6th grade will discover the world of energy through a complete experience with content, activities and scientific experiments related to electricity. For this purpose, ENGIE Energía Perú has transformed a 100% electric bus into a mobile classroom, which is itself part of the educational experience, and which will not generate CO2 emissions during its journey.
The contents have been developed in accordance with the curriculum established by the Ministry of Education, with the support of students from the Faculty of Education of the Universidad Nacional Mayor de San Marcos (UNMSM) within the framework of an inter-institutional agreement with ENGIE Energía Perú.
On the other hand, in collaboration with the non-profit educational association El Pez en la Luna, the educational experience and the pedagogical material were designed, as well as the corporate volunteer program that will be composed of UNMSM students and ENGIE employees.
“We are very proud to launch this project and grateful for the support of the UNMSM and the association El Pez en la Luna, we hope it will remain in the memory of the children as a unique experience. We are convinced that environmental education is key to accompany the transition towards a carbon neutral economy” commented Daniel Cámac, Deputy Country Manager of ENGIE in Peru.
“Projects like this help us to generate greater environmental empathy among citizens, which is precisely what we seek from the Ministry of the Environment, that environmental education has a purpose and that purpose is to generate agents of change,” said Guiliana Becerra, Vice Minister of Environmental Management of the Ministry of the Environment, during the presentation.
