As the energy transition will transform the way we relate and produce power, our country not only needs to address and reskill the current workforce, but it also needs to involve and help educate children about renewable energy.
In support of this, ENERTRAG South Africa, a forerunner in the development of renewable energy projects in the Mpumalanga Province, has partnered with WindEurope to translate the well-loved ‘Let the Wind Blow’ children’s book for children in this region.
The book is now available in isiZulu and isiNdebele, two prominent languages in this area of the country, adding to the already available English, Afrikaans, Xhosa and Setswana editions, aimed at children across South Africa. The book has already been made available in over 30 languages, creating a global community that are sharing in this insightful tale of the desire for a healthier planet.
“Research shows that education in the mother tongue is a key factor for inclusion and through reading and storytelling children can be part of our energy transition to a system that includes renewable power through this beautifully illustrated story book,” said Mercia Grimbeek, Head of Development for ENERTRAG South Africa.
The company will also be donating hard copies of this illustrated book to schools in Mpumalanga and encourages member of the renewable energy sector, and any other interested parties to enjoy this uplifting resource.
