Students use graphs and statistics to learn about energy use around the world and consider sustainable energy solutions. They read a country profile to examine energy issues such as access, reliability, and energy-efficient infrastructure. Then students connect their research with the United Nations’ Sustainable Energy for All initiative and work together in small groups to create a public service announcement (PSA) that encourages people and governments around the world to work toward sustainable energy solutions.

Key objectives for students
Analyze total and per capita energy use for different countries
Understand the diverse energy needs of people around the world
Draw connections between energy use and sustainability
Create a PSA that encourages people to work toward sustainable energy solutions
