SHAAMS introduces solar energy activities during a national scouts Rally in Lebanon
In order to raise awareness about solar energy amongst the young, SHAAMS supported scouts activities during a national Rally that took place in Lebanon on May 3, 2015, and organized by Les Scouts du Liban. In a move to help kids become responsible leaders and citizens in the future, the Rally introduced educational games about solar energy, with the support of CCIA-BML.
More than 3,000 scouts, coming from all over the country, played active games that introduced them to ways of using the sun to produce electricity. Scouts played as well puzzles and received hints on good habits for energy saving, on other forms of renewable energies, and on the problems faced when relying on fossil fuels. The activities were animated by “Taqa” and “Shams” characters, which have the meaning of “Energy” and “Sun” in Arabic.
