Our project managers present the START2ACT project and the Energy Saving Game to visitors

 Europa Media and Geonardo are a group of SMEs and well familiar with the need to apply energy saving practices in their offices. In fact, that is where the inspiration for the START2ACT project began. Now, as the project is in its second year, many creative ideas for engaging ways to deliver the main message are flowing – start to act and save energy at work!


Apart from the recently published Knowledge Base, listing all the tips, documents, solutions, tools and products on energy efficiency for SMEs and start-ups,  an e-learning environment targeting office staff and company CEOs is in the works.


Before the launch of the e-learning course, Europa Media developed and released a teaser tool – the START2ACT Energy Saving Game.


Having tested the game last week at a networking event, Budapest Business Party, where it generated great interest from dozens of Hungarian business representatives, it is now being launched to a wider audience on the START2ACT website.


The idea behind the game is to introduce, in a quick and interesting way, the practice of using several office devices that can act as the most efficient measures to cut your office utility bill this summer. In order for the game to be engaging, the players should pay special attention as there are a number of tricks and potential traps included. The added value of the game is the additional knowledge it conveys, as each correct/incorrect answer includes an explanation of the energy saving potential for each device chosen.
