From November 12, 2012 until the end of June 2013, the International Polar Foundation is offering a “Pôles Energies” interactive workshop in Brussels, based on Princess Elisabeth Antarctica, the first Zero Emission research base in Antarctica. The workshop, which takes place at the Foundation’s educational facility, is aimed at classes from 10 to 18 years of age, and is currently open to French speaking students in Belgium.

Guided by a professional instructor from Green, a non-profit that educates on sustainable living, students discover the context that led to the construction of the research station, as well as the energy situation in Polar Regions. They carry out experiments on the technologies used at the station and learn some useful ways to use energy - in their home lives and at school - in a better way.

More about the project, and all practical details can be found under our dedicated project page.

"Pôles Energies" is financially supported by the following governments: Wallonie, Région de Bruxelles-Capitale, and the Fédération Wallonie-Bruxelles.
