We Are Energy is an initiative aimed at Enel employees’ children around the world, which offers a magnificent learning experience. With this initiative, children can develop their creativity with projects relating to energy, the environment or energy efficiency.
A new challenge is launched with each edition; the 2017 edition focuses on the 17 Sustainable Development goals established by the United Nations to be achieved between now and 2030. This will enable children to share their concerns and propose solutions for accessing quality energy and protecting the environment or combating climate change.
Children are provided with support materials, manuals, their own social network and even a Facebook page enabling them to contact children from other countries and share their experiences.
126 children from 17 different countries took part in the 2016 edition. That edition focused on designing the ideal city of the future. A sustainable, smart and open city left to the imagination of the participants.
Those that submitted the best proposals visited a camp in Italy during July
where they learnt how to experiment with new technologies and work in a team.
We Are Energy, which was launched in 2004, is a programme aimed at disseminating the Enel Group’s values among our employees’ families and among people interested in working with us, as well as involving children in the creation of a sustainable energy future.
