Welcome to the International Student Carbon Footprint Challenge!

We can measure our personal CARBON FOOTPRINTS by calculating how much greenhouse gas our activities produce.

Every time we turn on a light, travel by car, eat a meal, switch on a TV, or use anything that requires energy,
we produce carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases that cause climate change.

The CHALLENGE involves understanding the causes of climate change and then envisioning and embodying effective solutions
so we, as a planet, can avoid the worst potential consequences.

Are YOU ready to take the Challenge?

The next ISCFC session is will take place in April/May 2015 !

click here for the April/May session dates and for more information on how to involve your class(es) in this or future sessions.

Many thanks to all who donated to our 2014 indiegogo campaign to develop a fully-functional mobile version of our calculator.
We have now received funds to complete this project, which will be ready in early May, 2015!

In the meantime, you can CLICK HERE to try out the prototype mobile version

Note that this prototype lacks many features of the Flash version, so we still recommend that classes use the fully-functional Flash version until the new version is posted in late April.
