Carbon Footprints

In this activity from the Department for Education students work with statistical information to communicate key ideas connected to reducing climate change. Students look at the carbon footprint of the average UK citizen, consider how different spheres of activity contribute to this footprint and examine ways this might be reduced. They also look at the inequity and the unsustainability of the world’s current energy usage and convey this information graphically. The work might form part of a cross curricular project on sustainability. The activities are intended to be completed over a series of lessons and some require internet access.
