There are a lot of great educational resources out there to help people understand their clean energy options, but often language barriers can get in the way. Thanks to a generous grant from the Carolyn Foundation, Do It Green! Minnesota offers a number of handouts on energy efficiency and renewable energy in Spanish!
- Lista de Energía / Energy Checklist - a step-by-step list of easy tasks to do throughout the year to save energy
- Alternativos de energía renovable en Minnesota / Renewable Energy Alternatives in Minnesota - two informative articles about the different types of renewable energy available in Minnesota
- Preguntas de Energía / Energy Trivia Questions - good for teens and adults, this is a set of trivia questions about both renewable energy and energy efficiency
- Un mundo bello comienza contigo / A Beautiful World Starts with You Energy Activity Book - produced by the Environmental Protection Agency, this is full of fun and educational energy-related puzzles and games for kids
- Solar Energy Coloring Book - produced by the Texas Solar Energy Society, this book has a minimal amount of English, but the informative pictures are accessible to all kids
- If you would like free copies of these materials for your classroom, community group, or personal use, please email Eva Lewandowski at firstname.lastname@example.org.
