The Young Energy Champions has been an 18 month project within NHP. The project has aimed to educate young people & staff in House Projects around energy awareness and for this knowledge to be continually shared with future cohorts and future generations of care experienced young people. The project has been co-produced with four core young energy champions leading on its implementation over these 18 months. Dozens of people have been trained, numerous energy workshops delivered and a substantial amount of energy vouchers distributed.
The project has also created a legacy with online resources, films, podcasts and a new unit within the House Project Programme. All these resources can be shared widely to current and future generations of young people.
This page shares these resources and also has links to other sites that can support young people around energy.
The Energy Champions project was amazing to work on with so many opportunities to learn about how to save energy... I now know that putting clothes on your radiator is a bad idea as it creates a lot of moisture in your home!
