My name is Gwenola, I’m 16 years old, I’m a student in IET Secondary school in france.
My total carbon footprint is too high 12765 kg.
Concerning my carbon footprint, I was so surprised beacause I think it was less important, concerning my home result it too high, but for my purchases, my food and transport I’m in average.
To change my carbon footprint, I can change a lot of things for example : turn off the light when I leaving a room, stay less time in my shower. For transport I could take the bus or if it is sunny I can walk my bike. I can also turn my laptop during the night.
I can improve my carbon footprint in order to be in the average.

Hi, my name is Maddie and I’m 14 years old. I live in the United States. In the United States I live in Pennsylvania. My total footprint is 19549 kg of CO₂ per year, compared to an average of 20301 kg for Pennsylvania, USA, and 3791 kg (= 8358 lb) worldwide. I would really like to talk to you guys and compare all of our information. I think its cool that we are travel very differently . !! maddiieee (:
I think it could be easily argued both ways: technology it’s a want/ need.
Want : Everyone wants the newest and best technologies, the next best iPhone, the next best android, but it’s all a desire of a new and rapidly growing generation of materialists. We all KNOW that these technologies aren’t necessities but we don’t accept it.
Need : the rapid development of these new technologies forces every company to always be finding ways to make their product the best, this kind of competition leads to the development of new technologies that could ultimately lead to something much greater than simply a new phone.
Hi, My name is Danni and I’m Pennsylvania. My carbon footprint was 17832 kg CO₂ per year. I thought it would be way higher then what it turned out to be. For transportation the results were 5842 kg, at home it is 9818 kg, for food its 1537 kg, and for purchases its 634 kg. i don’t really know what to expect for these categories. I wonder if its normal or not? I think that going this activity with my school is so cool and I really like how it has to do the whole world. Thats so cool!!!!
My carbon footprint was 11054 kg of CO₂ per year, compared to an average of 20301 kg for Pennsylvania. I thought that my carbon footprint would be about the same as the average person in PA. I was about half the average person in PA. One improvement I could make is I could use reusable bags when shopping. I could also unplug electronics when I am not using them.
” I am fine with what I have as long as it works.” Few people think about this. I’ve learned that technology is always advancing itself and every month something new is coming out. So those who have the newest stuff before it even hits the shelf only have the spotlight for a while before something else comes.
In this time, people WANT the last generation mobile or iPod or PC, but every phone are all equal, it’s just a matter of being the latest fashion and make themselves better.
I believe that a person is not better just because it has the latest generation of mobile.
We use our until it works so as to pollute much less.
Hi, my name is Diego, I’m 17 years old.
I live in a small village in the north of Italy, called Ono San Pietro.
In my village there’s not a big pollution.
my total carbon footprint is 9519 kg of Co2 per year.
the average in my region is 8181 kg.
I live 20 km from school and use bus to go to school.
We should work on how to reduce our consumptions in each area for example use the alternative energy and recycle.
I found this project interesting and usefull.
Hello my name is Andrea, I’m 17 I live in Italy. I think technology has been especially created to help the man in every day life, such as cell phones that allow you to stay in touch with anyone, anywhere. It is true that the excessive use of technology, such as video games is something completely useless and you could easily do without it; alternative would be to be with friends to spend some time outdoors rather than being alone in front of a screen.
My name is Davide, i’m 18 years old, i’m a student at IIS Meneghini Secondary school in Edolo, a small town in the north of Italy. My total carbon footprint is 11416 kg of CO2 per year, in Italy the average footprint is 8181 kg. In my house there aren’t solar panels. I always go to school by car and i like playing on my computer and watching some video. We use fluorescent bulbs in whole my house so it is not bad.
My name is Pietro and I’m 17 years old.
I’m a student at IIS Meneghini Secondary School in Edolo, a small village in the north of Italy.
My total footprint is 10170 kg of CO2 per year. My result is more than the average of Italy (8181
My highest category is “Home” probably because my family and I spend a lot of time at home. My house is quite big and we heat 6 months per year.
I’d like to reduce my carbon footprint but solar panels are very expensive, we don’t have nuclear plants in Italy, so the cheapest way of heating is wood.
