Rural energy video contest: Submit your video and win a GoPro-action camera

Share this Post:

Do you live in a small town in the European countryside? Do you have to stack up and carry coal throughout all winter? Do you have to make an appointment each year to fill up your oil tank with expensive and polluting heating oil?

Or perhaps you have installed renewable energy or energy-saving technologies in your house or business? Is your house as energy efficient as it can be? We want you to tell us and tell Europe these stories!

To participate in the contest, make a 2-min (max.) home-video (e.g. using your smartphone or a handy cam) showing us the challenges you face on a daily basis or the sustainable energy improvements made in your residence or business. Submit your video and get a chance to win one of the two cool and dynamic GoPro Action Cameras, allowing you to share your rural energy adventures from your viewpoint with the rest of the world!
