Hello. My name is Simona and I’m from Lithuania. Our school is participating in this project and I’m really happy to try it this year. Yesterday I calculated my footprint and guess what. It was a lot higher than the average. This fact was a true surprise for me, because my family is trying to live environmentally friendly life. Using wood for home heating is not a great way after all. Well, now i can’t do nothing about it, but I think when I’ll be living on my own, I will try to use solar or other energy. I don’t really want to do any harm to my planet.

Hello everyone! My name is Ingrida and I’m from Lithuania. Our school is participating in this great project. When calculated my footprint I was shocked. I hadn’t expected this to be that high! The highest result was on home energy and appliances part. Now I’m determened to change my habbits.
Hi to all,
I am a teacher in a Greek high school and with my class are very pleased to participate in this program. We have started using the calculator two days ago and the first impression is that out footprint is lower than the average. The next thing to do is find out which behavior we have to change or to improve in order to decrease the amount of CO2 we generate.
Hello to all - we are so excited to participate in the challenge for the first time. My students started yesterday. Although here in NY city our footprints are generally lower then the rest of the country, we have MUCH that can be improved! It is great that the students can go back and change their answers and really see which changes in their behaviors could decrease their footprints the most. I feel certain they will want to challenge themselves again in a few months to see how much better they are doing!
Longish but incredibly insightful ;) interview about Einztein by Kirsten Winkler @EduKwest. For some reason, the lights on my end made everything look extremely yellow. That aside, it pretty much captures what Einztein is about. The only thing I would add is that, while we want to bridge classroom learning and “real” learning, we are definitely not for classroom learners, only.
