My name is Bill Licopoli and I teach Environmental Science for 11th and 12th graders in a public high school north of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in the United States. We focus on climate change and the students have been very responsive. A large part of our curriculum concerns fossil fuels and energy consumption so this program fits very well. This is our first international project and look forward to hearing all of the discussions from students around the world.
My name is Maria Consiglia, I teach English for building technicians at IIS Meneghini Secondary School in Edolo, a small town in the north of Italy. We live in a beautiful area in the Alps. Here the mountains are breathtaking and there are a lot of national parks and natural reserves. Students are encouraged to respect and not damage the environment, but maybe they are not aware of their impact on nature. After gathering data we were impressed about our carbon footprint, particularly in some categories such as home and transport, compared to other countries.
My students are aged 16-17 and they are studying to be surveyors. They are interested in eco-building and sustainable architecture, they have not participated in any international project before, and I think this may be a good opportunity for them to think about what they can do to reduce their energy consumption, and to share opinions and solutions, with other students of different countries, to minimize the global environmental impact.
Hello, everybody from α beautiful and warm country in the Mediterranean sea called Greece. We just had Easter holidays and now, we are back at work. I am really glad to participate in this session and exchange information about carbon footprint statistics and environmental issues. I believe, that a stepping stone to knowledge is a building block for the environment.
The results from the carbon footprint calculator were really interesting because we have realized that a number of activities in our daily life are environmentally harmful. Our biggest carbon footprint results from the use of woods for heating in the winter. This is a problem caused from the economical crisis that we are facing the last few years. Also, after lots of discussions we have concluded that the right use of technology can prevent most of the environmentally harmful activities. For example, the creation of electric cars, solar panels, wind turbines, geothermal energy, sea wave energy, recycling, composting, …….. are some of the solutions which could help the environment to recover.
I wish you all, to have good discussions and useful results. The protection of our environment must be our first priority because it affects our present and our future lives.
Hello. I’ve just sent my students’ results to the email address given in the instructions for completing ISCFC class data. It’s really interesting to compare all the results.
Unfortunately, my students will be back at school on 10th May only so this is when most of them will join the discussion. However, I’ve already seen some familiar names here:)
My name is Dubravka and I am a teacher from Pozega, Croatia.
I participated with my students in the ISCFC in 2011 and 2012 and since it was really a rewarding experience, I have decided to join you again.
I have just gathered and sent my student’s footprint data to Jason and hope that my 9th grade students will soon join the discussion. They are only 15 years old and have not participated in an international project before but I hope they will do their best and manage to show how much they care about our planet.
I am really glad to hear that so many young people and teachers from all over the world (almost fifty schools from twenty countries in this session!) are eager to learn from each other about environmental issues and to take actions to decrease their carbon footprint.
Here is a link to our school web pages in case you are interested to find out how I have celebrated the Earth Day with my 11th graders two weeks ago:
The article is in Croatian but I hope that you will enjoy the photographs and some very interesting suggestions made by the Nature Conservancy.
I am really looking forward to collaborating with all of you and reading your students’ posts on Einztein!
My name is Martina Vidović and I teach biology at Prva Gimnazija Varaždin in Varaždin, Croatia. My 10th and 11th classes will participate in the ISCFC project and this is their first time. We are all very excited and glad to be given the opportunity to participate! My students already calculated their carbon footprints and are encouraged to participate in the discussion.
If your class participation in the International Student Carbon Footprint Challenge is featured in your school or community newspaper, we would like to post a link to the article on our “ISCFC Schools in the News” discussion. If you can send that link to me at email@example.com I will share the good news!
My name is Lindsay Knippenberg and I teach 9th Grade Environmental Earth Science at Mooresville High School in Mooresville, North Carolina. This is the first time that my classes will be participating in the carbon footprint challenge and my students are very excited. They will be calculating their footprints tomorrow and then we will be on the discussion boards next week. I am really looking forward to collaborating with all of you and I’m excited for my students to have discussions with students outside of North Carolina and even the United States.
Hello everyone! I teach at a secondary school in Rybnik, Poland. My second-year students will be participating in the project. Actually, they have already started calculating their personal carbon footprints and I have seen some of the results:) I’m still waiting for the others to finish.
I would like to thank Geraldine for contacting me and enebling us to participate in the project:)
I’m looking forward to meeting all the other teachers as well.
