Green awareness got a boost
In 2008, no fewer than 115 families signed up when ProjectZero was looking for new green role models to inspire the rest of the Sønderborg area’s residents to save energy – and thus their carbon footprint.
Throughout the following year, the families participated in a specially designed program with theme meetings, energy-efficient advice, challenges, sparring and competitions to prepare them in the best possible way to cut their energy consumption. Each family created their own action plan and armed with measuring equipment, the hunt was on for the household’s electrical culprits and bad habits. Families could track their own energy consumption on a daily basis.
