The EnWG start new action: ‘GO GREEN’ together with the AEGEE Network. Every month EnWG will organize a Social skype meeting about a determined thematic together with advices and ideas for actions. Locals can organize workshop, discussions, their own skype seminars, actions related with each month’s topic. Then we kindly ask you to share your experience, stories and photos to enwg.aegee@gmail.com, and we will share with the Network.

We ask contribute antennas in local activities to green topics related by the each month:

February: Climate Change

You-Control-Climate-Change-773583_1

Climate change is a controversial topic, only for those who still claim it is a natural phenomenon. Time is running out to take initiatives in order to reduce our pollutant emissions, before we pass the red line; but what exactly is all that about?  Watch this TEDx video for a ‘Simple’ explanation by David Roberts: http://tedxtalks.ted.com/video/TEDxTheEvergreenStateCollege-Da

You also recommend you the great movie ‘Do the Math’ from 350.org, which you may easily (and free of charge) obtain here: http://act.350.org/signup/math-movie/?

March-April: Sustainable energy

green-energy

Sustainable energy is the sustainable provision of energy that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their needs.

Technologies that promote sustainable energy include renewable energy sources, such as hydroelectricity, solar energy, wind energy, wave power, geothermal energy, artificial photosynthesis, and tidal power, and also technologies designed to improve energy efficiency.

May-June:  Green Transportation

basque-green-transport

Green transport refers to the broad subject of transport that is or approaches being sustainable. Transport operations and logistics as well as transit-oriented development are involved.

Sustainable transport systems make a positive contribution to the environmental, social and economic sustainability of the communities they serve. With more and more people on the planet, transport systems are developing every day;  the advantages of increased mobility need to be weighed against the environmental, social and economic costs that transport systems pose.
AEGEEans are recognized for travelling a lot. Do you take sustainability into account?
July-August: Greenhouse effect

faq_1_3_fig_1

These gases, which are all naturally occurring, act as a blanket, trapping in the heat and preventing it from being reflected too far from the Earth. They keep the Earth’s average temperature at about 15°C: warm enough to sustain life for humans, plants and animals. Without these gases, the average temperature would be about -18°C… too cold for most life forms. This natural warming effect is also sometimes called the greenhouse effect.
