By Anne Sewell     Nov 1, 2013 in Environment
A Spanish entry in the Energy Bits Video Challenge on the subject of recycling has won one of three awards, for the category Audience Award. A cleverly-made short film about our throwaway society made by pupils at a school in Spain.
The Energy Bits Video Challenge is a contest open to students aged 11-18 in nine European countries: Belgium, Czech Republic, France, Germany, Great Britain, Greece, Italy, Slovenia and Spain.
The aim of the contest is to "promote awareness and increase understanding on energy saving and sustainability among European youths via video production."
There were several topics for the students to choose from, including: renewable energy, energy saving, energy efficiency, sustainable transport, recycling and reuse. Videos were not allowed to exceed 3 minutes.
The above winning entry by the Spanish pupils is related to material recycling and reuse. The music was composed and played by the students themselves, and the following participated in the video:
Roger Macaya Munell
José Alejandro Santamaría Rodríguez
Janna Paracolls Gensana
Miquel Sierra Montoya
Gabriela Santamaría Rodríguez
