Project Overview

Today’s students are tomorrow’s leaders, policy makers and most of all they will be energy consumers. But how will their energy be produced and from what? Given the finite supply of fossil-based fuels, the environmental impact related to extracting and using these fuels and the often volatile impact financial and economic markets, it’s understandable that students need to be part of the discussion regarding the future of the world’s energy needs and consumption.   Igniting the discussion is the Global Alternative Energy Debate involving high school students worldwide using brought together via the global fabric of Research & Education (R&E) networks.

Scheduled to launch on Earth Day, Tuesday, April 22, 2014, and run through May 2014, the debates will include schools from Australia, Canada, Croatia, Czech Republic, Hong Kong, Iran, Russia, Taiwan, Ukraine, The United Kingdom, and The Unites States. The program will match students for a 90 minute discussion on the pros and cons of alternative sources of energy including but not limited to nuclear, bio-fuels, solar, wind and tidal.
