Awareness of water, energy and the environment
Are you a teacher that is looking to teach your class about energy, water and the environment? SIG has put in place a series of educational activities and materials for children aged 9-13 years. Why not take advantage of them!
To learn everything there is to know about water and energy, sign up for our workshops, which are organised for primary schools in Geneva (from 6P to 8P, or 9-13 years of age). Through games and simple explanations, our presenter will explain how a wind turbine or a hydropower station works, as well as so many other things!
In partnership with the SLE (Service des Loisirs Educatifs or Educational Recreation Service) of the DIP (Department of Education), SIG offers week-long courses of green classes on the theme of energy and sustainable development.
Every day of the week is based around water, air, earth and sun.
SIG Junior, the website for teaching children about the environment
Through intuitive navigation and attractive illustrations, children learn in a fun way about the journey of water, about the different form of energy, and about day-to-day eco-gestures for conserving the environment.
How does a solar power station work? What is geothermal energy? Why do you need to save energy? To find out, order our educational booklets from our presenter, or download them below.
From windmills to solar power plants, discover the different energies together with your students and familiarise them with environmental concepts, such as the greenhouse effect or biodiversity.
Eco-gestures, child's play!
Why is it necessary to monitor our energy consumption, and how can we perform this? This entertaining manual offers smart recommendations to save energy on a daily basis!
This teaching aid supports you in addressing various water-related issues in class: history, geography, the water cycle, sewage treatment and the adequate measures to save the blue gold.
The hazards of electricity
Fires, electrocution; it is essential to know and understand the hazards of electricity, whether at home or outdoors. This brochure will help you raise awareness among your students.
Our educational playlist offers explanatory and affordable videos on hydroelectricity, the treatment of drinking water, the history of the Jet d’Eau and the operation of the Canton’s purification plants.
