TEACHERS: do you want to have your high school/secondary school classroom take the challenge?

There are 3 main steps in the International Student Carbon Footprint Challenge (ISCFC):

1) Students calculate their carbon footprint;

2) Teachers submit their class data for posting and review other class data posted on our world map;

3) Students log on to our online conversation site and participate in ISCFC discussions with students around the globe.


IMPORTANT DATES FOR THE MOST RECENT SESSION, APR/MAY 2015
  • By April 17: teacher submits online participation form.
  • On April 27: new calculator version, with full mobile compatibility will be available for testing (registered teachers only).
  • May 5: following feedback from registered teachers, public launch of new footprint calculator, with availability to all students.
