Quiz was fun and
popular at the
EU Green Week '05
Many filled it out and had fun. It was also
a possibility to win 1 yr Subscription of Sustainable Energy News.
During the exhibition many who filled out the Quiz got the correct
answer, which gave the opportunity to speak about our activities and
Here you can also read the
