The message of Passive Solar Design of Buildings is simple: "We can reduce our consumption of fossil fuels, the production of greenhouse gases, and the depletion of our precious resources. We can make a difference."
Through computer animation, interviews and actual footage of passive solar houses, the principles of energy-efficient building design are thoroughly discussed and illustrated.
Produced and written for secondary school children and tertiary students the video is also relevant to the general public, libraries, local government bodies, architects and town planners, and builders throughout Australia and New Zealand. Specific educational objects are linked to the Student Outcome Statements, which are stated in the Teacher Resource Notes, available free to schools.
