Full of Energy: let´s RENEW our minds!

General description

Kyoto´s protocol+ Sustainable Development VS Pollution + Greed

How can we win the fight of our lives? Can we have a social development and protect the planet´s environment at the same time? How to prevent the economical crash with the rise of energy prices?

We must RENEW our minds by learning the importance and applications of the clean energies sources like: solar, wind, water, geothermal, hydrogen and biomass.

In order to better achieve that, we´ll have theoretical classes, practical classes and case studies presented by specialized companies; and excursions to Porto´s hydroelectric dams, solar thermal houses and wind farms.

Besides this we are preparing an amazing social programme to make sure you will have the BEST time of your life! You´ll discover Porto´s treasures like: the Douro River and its incredible bridges, the Porto Wine, the sunshine at the beaches by the Atlantic Ocean and our crazy parties!!

We are sure that you can´t resist to our invitation.

So...see you next September in Porto :)
