Hello everyone -
I am from Oakland, California US. I am teaching an AP Biology class right now that will be participating here. My students were very surprised by how much travel affected their results but it will be interesting to see where they go from there on this forum. They will be signing up today and may start posting if time is in our favor later today.

Hello everyone -
My name’s Paolo Jacomelli and I’m an English teacher in Liceo Lugano2, a high School in Ticinio Switzerland. My students are aged 17 on average and almost all girls as it is a linguistics class. My class is not particularly ecologically concerned so I’m hoping that the project will open their eyes to what they can do the protect the environment. I will soon be submitting the data for our session.
Hello, my name is Stella and I teach both, ICT and Technology in a public secondary school in Greece. My students are at the age of 16 and we live in a small town in the Evros Regional Unit, in Thrace, Greece. This year, I carry out a project about Sustainability and that’s why I decided to participate and join you. As soon as we are ready, I’ll send the Excel file.
Welcome Sept/Oct ISCFC teachers! Returning teacher Tim Newman and his AP Biology class were the first to turn in their data for the session, and Bishop O’Dowd school in Oakland CA USA now has an update pin. Fabulous!
Which school will be next?
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:)
