CEM brings drama to schools again to promote environmental protection and energy conservation

Macau, 9 November 2020

CEM is committed to supporting local education, providing diversified educational activities on popular science for students, and spreading important messages such as caring for the Earth and treasuring resources in a fun-filled approach. Since its launch in 2017, the “Educational Drama Tour” has been well-received by schools, and viewed by over 10,000 teachers and students in three consecutive years. This academic year, CEM launched the tour again with a brand new drama, visiting 17 primary schools across Macau and bringing exciting performance to over 2,200 P3 and P4 students. CEM hopes to promote the right way of using electricity and impart the knowledge of environmental protection to students through interactive and entertaining stage performance.

The drama tour consists of stage performance and interactive sessions, and schoolchildren are invited to take part in the drama on stage to make it more engaging and entertaining. The drama tells a story of how intelligent technology has completely integrated into our life and become indispensable in the near future. While enjoying the convenience brought by technology, mankind has abused the resources and led to the deterioration of the Earth's ecosystems. The drama aims to raise students’ awareness about the importance of daily energy conservation and how to use electricity safely. It also lets students understand that it may be convenient for them to get electricity, but electricity is actually precious and not easy to come by. If people do not change their lifestyles, the resources on our planet will be exhausted one day. For the future of mankind, we should start making changes today.

CEM looks forward to organizing more diversified activities on campus in the future. Children are our future and builders of tomorrow's society. It is of utmost importance to help them develop the right habit of power consumption, as well as embrace resource and environmental protection to become a world citizen. Schools participating in the tour include Colégio Diocesano de São José 3, Escola D. João Paulino, Escola dos Moradores do Bairro do Patane, Escola Oficial Zheng Guanying, Escola Nossa Senhora de Fátima, Escola da Sagrada Familia, Escola Primária Luso-Chinesa do Bairro Norte, Saint Mary Mazzarello School, Escola Chong Tak de Macau, Keang Peng School (Primary Section), Escola de Santa Teresa, Escola Ilha Verde, Chan Sui Ki Perpetual Help College, Escola Fong Chong da Taipa, Escola Choi Nong Chi Tai, The Workers' Children High School (Primary Section) and Escola Primária Oficial Luso-Chinesa "Sir Robert Ho Tung".
