More than 200--SPARE schools in the Central Federal District and the Moscow region participated in the All-Russian program "Together brighter" in September - December 2016.
Each school has developed its own SPARE program to enable their respective participation in the regional and school events. The main idea of the program was to collect signatures on a declaration of intention to show respect for energy.
The students - members of the "power teams" and the group "Environmental Envoys”, the winners of the SPARE school projects conducted roundtables and school festivals tagged "Together brighter."
The best drawings and crafts created from waste and recycled materials were presented at the regional festivals and city fairs. SPARE program “Energy Saving Week” was held in joint actions with the energy-saving weeks tagged “Together brighter” where two students from Bryansk, Yaroslavl and Kaluga organized flash mobs «SPARE together and brighter" in the streets and squares of their villages.
Students from the cities of Bryansk, Oryol and Moscow collected antique lighting fixtures and organized tours for younger students at these exhibitions. For pupils of the Moscow and Kaluga regions, teachers organized tours to these workshops which included private workshops and demonstration areas of metal processing, textile, glass and the areas of energy-efficient plants and equipment.
The All Schools SPARE program "Together brighter” ended at the end of December with the creation of energy-workshops in which students created new projects for the SPARE competition.
