2014 Pionniers de l’énergie et du climat

The Swiss Federal Department of Energy, through its national action programme, SwissEnergy, will support the Energy and Climate Pioneers - an initiative that Swisscom began in 2010 together with Solar Impulse and myclimate. 

Education has always been close to the heart of the Solar Impulse co-founders, Bertrand and André. What a privilege to speak about clean technologies to hundreds of young people at once. Classes from across Switzerland that have completed an environmental-friendly project are invited to gather together for one day of shared learning in Bern on the 25th of November. Their projects have been conceived in one of five categories: mobility, energy, nutrition, knowledge and artwork.

“The most renewable energy we have is our own potential and our own passion. The opportunity to demonstrate energy efficiency gives the tools that will provide a sustainable future,” said Bertrand Piccard in advance of the 2014 event. “The achievements of these young Climate Pioneers in previous years has been an inspirational example of what can be achieved. SwissEnergy will be a great partner to spread this initiative right across Switzerland. And can you imagine if other countries would follow the Swiss example given by Swisscom”.

11,438 children in Switzerland have become Climate Pioneers since the initiative started, creating 512 projects so far! The additional input of SwissEnergy means that double the number of classes can benefit from motivational lessons, opening up the initiative also to secondary schools for the first time. To find out more about the school resources from the Energy and Climate Pioneers, see their official website:
