Hello, my name is Izabella and I am from Bulgaria. This whole project is amazing, and I am so glad, that I take a part in it.
I have calculated my Carbon Footprint and I am happy, that my results are very low, but actually I wasn’t surprised about the results, because I’ve always tried to save water and electricity, recycle and reuse things. .
My highest carbon is on transport, cuz I live far from school, and unfortunately it takes to much time to walk to school or to go by bike, so I have to travel by bus. And plane flights really surprised me, they really increase my Carbon Footprint, I didn’t expect it.

Gaia Granchi, Nov. 30, 2011

Hi , my name is Gaia and I’m from Italy. I live in Pisa , it is a beautiful city and I love her. I calculated my carbon footprint with my class to find that it was smaller than average compared to most Italian, but gigantic compared to the rest of the world! My family tries not to waste anything, but this is not enough! we can improve! I think if we all work hard we can improve the world! :)

We talk a lot about “How the Internet is Revolutionizing Education” but this infographic via onlineeducation.net really drives it home.

A choice stat: “67% of colleges are unable to meet demand for online courses.”

A choice excerpt: “Higher education is no longer only for the elite; anyone with an Internet connection can educate themselves.”

Lana M-Croatia, Nov. 28, 2011

Hi, my name is Lana and I am from Croatia. I calculated my carbon footprint a few weeks ago and the result was a little surprising – my CF was definitely higher than I had expected, especially in the home section. I’m really glad I have joined this project and I’m surprised how much the quiz influenced my behaviour. I have already started to change my habits and it hasn’t been too difficult since I have realized that I can save energy and money and help our planet at the same time. Now I can’t imagine going to sleep and leaving my TV or computer turned on. I have also decided to cut down on water consumption and to take shorter showers.

Yasmin R-Sweden, Nov. 25, 2011

Hi! My name is Yasmin and I’m from Sweden.
I have calculated my carboon footprint and my results is lower than the avarage of my country.
My home energy carboon footprint was surpisingly low and I think it might be because in our house we use florecent bulbs…
The highest carboon footprint i got, was on transport. It was still lower than the avarage. Anyways, I think it is because of I use the buss everyday. I don’t walk or take the bicycle but when it’s nice wather i could actually walk.
Do you have any other ideas how to increace my carboon footprint?

    Wow, my results were opposite! My home was the highest carbon footprint. What is the weather like in Sweden? I usually always have the air conditioning on because it is hot where I live.

    Congrats to you, Yasmin! Such a great feeling to know that there are actually people who care about our future. Keep on going! :)

    I think it's good as it is lower than its avarage. Just continue with what you are doing right now ;)

    Don't think you have to change it at all! Mine was abnormally low for my state also while many others who calculated their carbon footprint with me were extremely high. Don't think you have to make it “normal”, try and make it lower, actually. A lot of people I know, including me, have incandescent light bulbs that are bad for the environment. If you have those, you may want to switch to CFL light bulbs because they save you money overall since they last longer and also use less energy. I hope my information helped you!

    Low cf is good. Lower is better. You need to congratulate yourself for the score. The challlenge will be to keep it low!
  • Marion Schöttelndreier Marion Schöttelndreier Nov. 26, 2011
    It is a very good result to have a lower carbon footprint. This means that your way of leaving is responsible for a lower release of carbon than for most other people in Sweden. So this is what I meant when I wrote that it is sometimes good to be “unnormal” if your carbon footprint is lower than for the average for your country. I agree that the challenge is to keep it as low as it is or you can try to make it even lower.

Hi
My name is Mona and I am from Sweden. I have calculated my carboon footprint with my class, and my transportation is 553 kg compared to the region that is 1894 kg. But the food is higher than expected. Can you give some advice how to reduce it.

    Hello!
    To buy organic food is a good way to reduce your carboon footprint.
    To eat less meat reduces the carboon footprint as well. You can also choose to become a vegetarian.

Hi guys! I’m Isabella from Italy, in the beautiful city of Pisa, like you, Sara. I’ve caluculate my footprint, but i don’t want to speak about it. So much people had done it, and I only want to speak about your country. Where are you from? Some interesting places? What is the most strange thing in your city?
