I think it is important to foster and encourage energy efficiency in schools. 1) Schools expend a lot of energy, and it would be great for the environment to eliminate schools from the long list of places using energy inefficiently. 2) Encouraging and demonstrating energy efficiency to young people is important for the future of the environment. By showing young people how energy efficiency is incorporated in daily life and the positive effect it has on the environment; they are more liking to use it or encourage it in their adult life. Fostering energy efficiency is important.
