ABOUT THE PROGRAMME

The mision of the H2STUDENT program is to teach young people to learn about a sustainable future on their own. Through interesting lectures, content available on the online platform www.h2student.si and through the game in an interesting way to arouse interest in sustainable mobility, hydrogen, raise technological awareness and inspire young people to choose studies and professions related to new hydrogen technologies.
By raising young people’s awareness of the positive effects of using H2 technologies, we are spreading the idea of ​​sustainable mobility, the usability of hydrogen and the potential uses of H2 technologies for the general population.
The program is also intended for young people who have already finished school and have been looking for a job for a long time and would like to train as mentors in the program in the field of sustainable mobility through the H2Student program.
As there is a lack of competencies in the field of hydrogen in Europe, we want the H2STUDENT program to:

  • contribute to the achievement of the 2030 Agenda pipeline; hydrogen technologies and green hydrogen will be key to achieving these goals, so linking renewables to zero-emission transport is a fundamental task for a low-carbon society.
  • to promote hydrogen and emission-free transport to young and future generations and to inspire them for hydrogen and education in this direction.

Deliveries in the season 2019/20:
Two countries: Slovenia and Croatia
7 towns
11 high schools
1270 students
44 mentors

Plan for 2020/21:
5000 High school students
160 mentors

Mag. Mojmir Klovar

“The development of new technologies is extremely fast, and educators can acquire
this knowledge only in cooperation with development institutions or employers. The
knowledge acquired in this way is included in lectures and passed on to the students.
The experience we gained by participating in the H2STUDENT project is unique and I
believe that the information obtained in this way will be successfully used by students in lessons or project assignments.”

“The H2STUDENT project is a good example of promoting new technologies through fun and socializing. It is important to involve as many participants as possible in the project in the future. Some project participants will later become involved in hydrogen
production and use technologies, and most will be potential users.”

“I am glad that we were able to get involved in the H2STUDENT project, which broadens the horizons of young people, encourages teamwork, cooperation between them and enables problem-solving in an interesting way. We will continue to participate in the project, as the responses of students and teachers are very positive.”

“We are happy to have joined the project. H2STUDENT perfectly complements our efforts to implement the guidelines for education for sustainable development. The project offers an ideal insight into the present, where rapid technological advances go hand in hand with environmental problems that require immediate action. The project raises awareness that each of us can contribute an important part in the
sustainable solution of problems that humanity has dug up in recent centuries
with the desire for rapid development and comfort of living. ”

“I am pleased that I can tell a few words about the existing platform H2Student. I think such initiatives are so important for younger generations, because they want to understand new technologies; they want to understand future technologies and it is our task to inform them, to train them about these new technologies. Only that way they will get the whole picture about the future needs, the future solutions. I am giving my acknowledgments to the authors of this platform, to the initiators and I hope that they will develop the future very well.”

Dr. Janez Potočnik at 25th meeting of the UN International Resource Panel, Nov. 8th 2019, BLED, Slovenia

Prof. dr. Matjaž Valant

“Slovenia is now determined to lead the transition to a circular economy and that the transition from EU guidelines to action plans is a key one. This should be addressed immediately, as there is not enough time to leave it to individual companies or cities. all EU countries should be involved in this initiative”

“I think exploiting opportunities enabled by hydrogen technologies makes absolutely common sense.”

Sebastijan Brežnjak

“We are pleased to join the H2STUDENT project, which aims to raise awareness among young people about the importance of sustainable mobility and the related usefulness of hydrogen. In an attractive and dynamic lecture, many interesting concepts were presented to our students. This was followed by a competition in assembling cars from LEGO blocks and accompanying activities. I am convinced that the students have acquired useful new knowledge that they will be able to use successfully both in further education and more broadly.”
