Elementum Energy the UWEA Member Company launched a creative project competition “Kids for the clean planet: secrets of the wind” this autumn. The target audience of the competition were pupils of general education schools located in the territories of Mayakivska and Starokozatska communities in Odessa region, where Elementum Energy builds and operates its Dnistrovska wind power plant.
On December 24, 2021, Andriy Konechenkov, Chairman of the UWEA Board, and Alexander Podprugin, COO of the Elementum Energy, went to the Odesa region to personally meet with all the participants and reward the winners of the project competition.
According to the conditions of the competition, participants read the children’s book “Secrets of the wind”, developed a relevant wind or eco project and presented it on a creative video. More than 35 teams or 150 pupils participated in this contest.
After a week of lengthy debates, members of the competition committee unanimously declared the “Kimbur” team from Mayakivska local community as the winner of the competition. A special feature of the team was the original approach to disclosing the importance of renewable energy sources in Ukraine and the presentation of its project in poetry.
