2IMPREZS Schools Save CO2 on Thick Jumper Day

13 February 2019 - Published by Debbie Glen
For the 15th consecutive year, Thick Jumper Day was organised by the Flemish government and supported by 2IMPREZS partner MOS.

 

 

The idea of a Thick Jumper Day is to create awareness about CO2 usage and reduction. Where it once started as a call to turn down the thermostat with one degree and wear a thick jumper; instead, it has now become the ideal moment to put a different CO2-reducing measure in the spotlight every year.

Schools can fill in the day as they wish, and our 2IMPREZS schools did not disappoint!

Primary school De Knipoog in Ranst knitted a giant scarf for the professor, so that they could wrap the entire school in it.

Middle school SJABI in Puurs prepared for Think Jumper Day by generating energy, which was stored in their own battery suitcase. This energy was then used to blow up a bouncing castle, where the students could bounce around to stay warm.

The students of SJABI high school had a jumper contest, where they found out who could wear the most jumpers at once.

And at middle school Busleyden Atheneum Pitzemburg in Mechelen, the students took time to investigate which elements in the school building were true energy-eaters.

Big congratulations to all participating schools!
