ManagEnergy KidsCorner includes a wealth of energy education content in 20 European languages, covering energy efficiency, renewable energy (bioenergy and biofuels, solar, wind and hydropower), sustainable transport and climate change. For children aged 6-11 there is a fun Flash interface with animations, pictures to download and colour, an extensive photo gallery, a painting competition and links to games and other websites.

For students age 12-16, there are detailed information pages including dozens of photos, electronic postcards, tips on energy saving, an interactive photo gallery, and links to online games, videos and other energy websites. Links on national pages are in the children's own language. Many other energy links (from across the globe) are available through the teacher database and the English language version of the website.

The ManagEnergy KidsCorner was officially launched in English, French, German, Italian and Spanish at the ManagEnergy Annual Conference in Brussels and live on the Internet on 8 February 2006.
