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!

Educational activities



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! 

Green classes


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.
