    Research output: Book/ReportReport


    Aiming for an energywise and environmentally more sustainable development seems to imply a significant educational challenge in communicating approppriate knowledge and attitudes in a broad sense. A pilot study has been carried out on investigating the Danish educational systems for the age group 16 - 19 years, with focus on the 63% in various types of high schools. The study was a first attempt to map how well these educations are suited for the new environmental challenges. The overall conclusion is that the educational programs do allow for significant inclusions of energy and environmental aspects in the education, but it is not clear to which extent these options are being utilized by the teachers. It is clearly an area of importance and one which needs further investigation.
