Education and communication

Education and information are vital building blocks for a sustainable society. In recognition of this, we have been committed to environmental education in schools, professional development, and the preparation of information materials for many years.

Climate protection projects in schools

In addition to the use of efficient technology, environmentally-conscious behaviour is a key element of efficient energy use and climate protection. Here, the power of the formative years is frequently revealed – after all, you can’t teach an old dog new tricks. For many years, the ifeu has engaged in environmental education on all levels from individuals schools to concept development for ministries in charge.

Materials and brochures

In addition to our research and consulting services, we support public relations activities for efficient energy use and renewable energy. We design books, brochures and leaflets for this purpose, and provide editing and guidance for the compilation of information materials in close cooperation with dedicated environmental communication agencies.
