Alternative resources of energy and the environment (AREE)

During the last years natural disasters like thunderstorms, floods and droughts became more frequent. Many scientists contribute these catastrophes to the climate change, which is mainly caused by the use of fossil fuels. However, mankind strongly relates on these sources of energy and at the moment there are only few alternative resources.
The Comenius project "Alternative resources of energy and the environment (AREE)” addresses these issues. It focuses on energy production and its distribution within the EU as well as on environmental problems, which are caused by the use of these resources. Furthermore, it is intended to show up and model possible solutions for the mentioned energy problem, with a focus on renewable energies and other environmentally friendly technologies.
This Comenius project consists of seven different secondary schools from six different countries in Europe: Germany, Italy, France, Lithuania, Spain and Norway. This wiki will be our trans-european Newspaper were different activities from the project will be presented by pupls and teachers. The projectperiod is from September 2011 until June 2013

The objectives of the project are to:
1) Show how renewable energies can be produced and how they can be used.
2) Show how the environment is affected by using fossil fuels and what can be done to minimize negative effects on the environment.
3) Increase the awareness of our use of energy.
4) Demonstrate how resources can be saved in private houses by using energy efficient technologies and construction methods.

During the project we will address these objectives by several means:
