An informed society and skilled workforce is vital for us to confront the challenges we face to deliver a secure, affordable and cleaner energy future.
OurFuture.Energy is an interactive website that will engage 11-16 year olds with the science underpinning the critical issues related to future energy supply and equip them with the knowledge to form their own informed opinion of the energy mix.
It will also encourage young people to develop an interest in science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) subjects to enable them to pursue rewarding and exciting careers within the energy sector.
Interactive games and quizzes, animations and videos,as well as current news stories will give young people an unbiased, relatable and immersive digital experience, equipping them with the knowledge to form their own views around the energy mix and the future.
