Energy Efficiency Education Program — Efficiency Manitoba

Energy Efficiency Education Program


This generation cares about saving energy

Students today are more environmentally conscious than any generation before them. They know that collectively, their individual actions can make a big impact.

The next generation will transform the way we think about energy and sustainability. That’s why we launched a new initiative for teachers and students—Generation E. We’ll share classroom-friendly resources and hands-on activities, developed with teachers in mind, that they can use to help their students understand their energy use and empower youth to make energy-saving changes at home.

Designed for students and their teachers

We’re working to build this initiative for Manitoba classrooms. Here’s what you can expect to access on the Generation E website

  • Kindergarten to Grade 5: Learning sheets, games, and group activities to explain what energy is and why it’s important to use less of it. 
  • Grade 6: Information and group activities to help introduce students to the concept of energy efficiency and identifying ways to save energy. 
  • Grade 9: Information, group activities, and self-led assignments to help them better understand their energy use and how to create more energy-efficient spaces. 
  • Teachers: Print- and digital-friendly resources, assignments, activity sheets, and lesson plans to bring energy efficiency to the classroom. 

Over time, we’ll expand the Generation E initiative to offer more educational resources for more age groups.


We’re here to help teachers bring up to date and engaging information about energy efficiency into their classrooms.
