EEEP School-Based Climate and Energy Education Project

(a NHLSCP led project)


This project began with one student - Adrian Huq - leading energy efficiency campaigns throughout the 2018-19 school year at Metropolitan Business Academy.  The success of the project led EEEP to apply for funds to expand the project into three new schools: the Sound School, Sacred Heart Academy, and Wilbur Cross High School.


The specific objects of the Project include:

- build student leader organizing skills.

- increase student, staff, parent energy efficiency awareness and action, so families save money and the community reduces GHG emissions.

- increase climate change action among students, in conjunction with New Haven Climate Movement Youth Action group.

- build on education/action strategies developed in year one.

The Elm Energy Efficiency Project works to encourage students, families, communities and building owners to reduce energy waste, save money and decrease greenhouse gas emissions in the New Haven region.  We organize public education campaigns, support policy change, and provide resources through the EEEP website. 


The Elm Energy Efficiency Project was created by volunteers of the New Haven/León Sister City Project. Click here for a pdf on why energy efficiency is so important for our world.
