Friends at the gates - Major success for EEA open house event.
Energetic: Hundreds of children took part in the treasure-hunt on the theme of energy. Here a group struggles to answer how much greenhouse gases an average person produces annually in different countries.
A wide range of activities were on offer for visitors of all ages throughout the evening. A treasure hunt on the theme of energy and aimed specifically at children presented participants with a variety of tasks to solve and questions to answer. A theatre group from a local school (Ballerup ungdomsskole) performed a piece with an environmental theme, especially written for the evening and based on the H.C. Andersen fairy-tale “The Nightingale” and (mainly unplugged) music was provided by the choir KonTakt and the urban street-rock band Oooh Sticky.
EEA communications manager Marion Hannerup says “The success of the evening shows that the environment is definitely of interest to the general public. The event clearly helped raise awareness of both the Agency and the issue of energy saving among Copenhageners.”
