Promotion of Environmental and Technical Higher Education

Promotion of Environmental and Technical Higher Education (PROMETHE-U.S.)

At a Glance





Promoting energy and environmental efficiency in Ukraine by encouraging youth (school students) to be strongly attracted by environmental and technical education

Main idea

Filling up the gap between the demand for technical experts and people who really chose technical education in Ukraine

Key tasks

  • Help the target audience get familiar with advantages and prospects of technical education
  • Raise interest between school students towards modern technical inventions and research studies in the issues of environmental protection and natural resources preservation
  • Give fundamental reasons in favour of technical education for the future generation of Ukraine; justifying the key tool of technical education in successful development of Ukraine

Target audience

Schoolchildren 9-11 grades who plan to receive higher education and in 5 to 8 years (after University) may become the drivers of economic development and environmental protection of Ukraine

RECP Centre's role

Project implementation starting from the project idea generation and ending up with developing the final video

Project Outcomes

The questionnairies demonstrated doubling the percentage of students who became inspired by the project ideas, and finally made their choice in favor of technical education as the basis for future profession. This is a great result!

Final project video (in Ukrainian)

Educational outreach activities were chosen as the main form of information delivery to the target audience . Twelve Ukrainian schools joined the project along with school teams of teachers.

Having received comprehensive support  from local stakeholders, the Centre’s experts developed and disseminated informational promotional materials for 2,000 schoolchildren. This helped to inform students about the gist of the project and the benefits of environmental and technical higher education in general.

As part of the project, 10 seminars/workshops were held for 492 pupils. During each three-hour event, students learned about the energy and environmental parameters of Ukrainian companies, got to know about energy resources, environmental protection, took part in practical exercises and had a chance to get familiar with the technical tools of the Centre (thermal imaging camera, in particular), etc. However, the key point was in the fact that pupils convinced of the benefits of environmental and technical education, and the successfully organized and illustrated technical experiments played a major role in reaching this effect.

To highlight the project current and final results and other informational content thematic platforms were developed on the Internet, and the project implementers reported about all completed activities on the RECP Centre’s web page.

As part of the project, all workshops were filmed by professionals, and then small promos were subsequently developed, which were viewed by more than 1,000 pupils from Ukrainian schools. At the end of each event, students filled in the questionnaires which then helped the organizers determine the degree of interest of students and their intention to choose a technical education in the future. This really simple technique allowed to evaluate both the level of organization of the workshops and, most importantly, to identify total students who finally made up their minds and changed their previous vector in the acquisition of special education in favor of those offered by the project “PROMETHE-U.S.”
