The EDP Foundation is arranging a new ‘Viva nuestra energía’ education programme. This time it will be a virtual event targeting young people aged between 8 and 16 years old in Asturias. This EDP Foundation initiative is now in its 10th year of bringing the world of energy to young people, and availing itself of new technologies to adapt to the security measures and social distancing required by today's health crisis.

The virtual competition will be based on learning about or broader knowledge of renewable energies, environmental protection and the UN's Sustainable Development Goals. The tournament consists of ‘Trivial Pursuit’ questions available from any computer. The challenge is to accumulate the largest possible number of correct answers in the shortest possible time, from the 20 questions that will be asked every day. The contest has weekly prizes, and will be held in four blocks on 2, 3 and 4 June; 9, 10 and 11 June; 16, 17 and 18 June, and finally 23, 24 and 25 June.

Contestants will be divided into three age categories: 8 to 10, 11 to 13 and 14 to 16. Up to 500 pupils can take part in each contest, and to answer the questions they will have to connect between 10:00 h and 18:00 h on each day of the challenge. At the end of each daily round, all contestants will be told their scores, and at the end of the 3 days the 3 contestants with the highest scores will be announced. Prizes will be awarded weekly to each age category, and the three highest scores will be given a tablet, a smart band and a board game or headphones, respectively. To take part and see the competition rules, go to http://vivanuestraenergia.es/, preferably using Google Chrome.

‘¡Viva nuestra energía!’ is making a large number of primary and secondary schools throughout the region aware of the importance of renewable energies and the UN's Sustainable Development Goals. The EDP Foundation initiative helps young people in Asturias learn about or broaden their knowledge of sustainability and the environment. This digital workshop is endorsed by the Principality of Asturias' Department of Education.
