hi everyone!
In many places of the world, people are using CO2. Even though people are trying to help save the world, most people do not make a lot problem help the earth and create less CO2, reduce purchases, to use public transport, to eat organic foods, and not heat or cool homes as they often do normally.

hi!
Because of where I live I have found it difficult to reduce my carbon footprint, transport. I live about 20 km away from the school and more than 20 km from almost every other place I need to be in order to go out with my friends or doing things that I need.
In the case of technology, the computer is almost essential in today’s society. Mobile phones are becoming always popular of the home phone based on the fact that they can found people when we need them. I think it would be very difficult to give up the phone.

    I agree. I think a mobile phone really is a necessity. If we were to give it up, then it would be bad if there was an emergency and no one would be able to reach you. If live near a friend and your both going to the same place, you can carpool with them.

The culture of organic food is to be carried out because it is very beneficial to human life even if the costs are quite high. There should be agricultural policies that prevent the use of certain pesticides and harmful treatments to humans not only to animals.

    Although organic food is expensive sometimes, I think the price is worth it to live healthy and well!

It seems to me like having the latest technology is usually not a need. I don’t really see a huge difference between the newest version of the Iphone and the last generation. I think that it’s fine to upgrade every few generations when it gets to the point that what you have is completely unusable compared to new things.

hello! My name is Eleanora, i’ve 17 years old and I live in the north of Italy. World hunger is a serious problem, many people in the past have moved to solve it but the success rate was very low because people do not have the food to be able to survive are many. The difference between one and the other part of the world is really great because in underdeveloped countries or continents, the percentage of daily food is very low while in developed countries such as Europe and the food is really this cause, in some cases, even the problem of excess food, thus obesity.

The problem of food is very common in underdeveloped countries with small but especially in developed countries the problem is the amount of food that is thrown away, but also the quality of food is important. In my country, the quality of food is great because everyone grows fruit and vegetables without treatment. I grow fruit and vegetables without treatments and genuine mainly because the products are not imported and do not make me thousands of kilometers.For the quality of food is important at times we are not aware of eating and shoddy products by paying a high price.

Hi, my name is Alex. I live in a small village in the north of Italy called Santicolo, near Aprica and Tonale pass. I’m 16 years old. My total footprint is 8864 kg of CO₂ per year. Compared to an average of 8181 kg for Italy.
The following is my carbon footprint:
Trasportation 1319 Kg
Home 4459 Kg

    Hi Alex. I have seen a lot of post from people north of Italy that use more energy than most Italians do. The winters must be very cold where you live if you need to use so much heat, but it seems that your transportation and purchases are in a good range.

Hi my name is elisabetta and I’m from Italy. I am attending a school for building technicians, I’ll be a surveyor and I’m interested in sustainable architecture. With this kind of building you can save environment and costs
I think it is going to be the future in the building’s field. I would like to know what do you think about this topic.

Hi! My name is Mattia.
The technology is growing, but as long as our planet will be able to bear it? I think we should use technology for those jobs where it is needed, for example in medicine.
Other uses should be more moderate to not waste much of our resources for unnecessary reasons.
