Luanda — Angolan minister of Education, Pinda Simão, Friday in Luanda praised the initiative of the Ministry of Energy and Water (Minea) for creating the academic project called "Cientista Ndengue".
Speaking at the presentation ceremony of the project, Pinda Simão said that the programme will teach children on the sustainable use of clean energy.
The minister added that the initiative will further encourage students to use clean energy sources that are inexhaustible, do not pollute the environment and with long lasting equipment.
"This initiative has come to reinforce the programmes of the Ministry of Education (MED) on the sustainable use of renewable energy," he noted.
The official also recalled that the MED has started six to seven years ago an integration programme of education in the field of clean energy, especially in high agrarian institutes located outside of urban areas.
The minister recalled that the MED also created a nucleus in High Industrial Institute of Luanda (IMIL), to promote the teaching of the use of renewable energy among the students.
He said that this will enable the country to have skilled experts in this field and secure the operation of projects in this energy sector.
The official stressed the availability of Education Ministry to continue working with Minea toward developing more areas of renewable energies in the country.
