Based on DECC’s 2050 Pathways project, the report looks at the UK’s energy policies from the perspective of those people who will have to live with those decisions for their entire adult lives. The report was drafted by young people aged between 16 and 25 who visited power stations, nuclear plants and projects promoting renewable energy sources to investigate the issues at first hand and met with experts, industry, pressure groups and innovators, to look at how we keep the lights on in 2050 while reducing carbon emissions.

The overall objective of the action has been to contribute to increased energy knowledge by addressing the world’s most important target group – namely our children. They will meet the climate and energy supply challenges when they become adults. The work done with the Kids4Future project can be valuable to give European children both the knowledge and the engagement to contribute to a sustainable future. At the core of the action are a joint visual profile and one brand. The platform is a universal energy story, called the story of the Rainmakers.
