We are going to talk about our presentation of project think for the future.
In the first year of our project some of students calculated CO2 footprint. The results is not encouraging . Average emission per person per year together is 3,4 t CO 2 We did not count goods that we usually buy and energy thar we use in school and in free time and average emission is still exceeding the recommended value 2t CO 2. Recommended value for the world is 2 tones of CO2 per person , and mostly in all countries it is exceed e d. The official data for Slovenia is 10 tones of CO2 per person per year and for United States is 20 tones.
In this pictures you can see us working with young pupils at Elementary School…
You can calculate yourown CO2 footprint with using different web pages
Let’s make your own CO2 footprinthttp://www.umanotera.si/index.ph p?node=170
CO2 FOOTPRINT• Students calculated their CO2 footprint1. 1.7 t of CO2 done by heating, lights and using all kinds of electric devices,2. 1.6t of CO2 in transport,• Average emission per person per year together is 3,4 t CO2• We did not count goods that we usually buy and average emission is still exceeding the recommended value 2t CO2.
Lesson with ten year old pupilsLarisa, Tjaša, Benjamin and me had a lesson about problem of global warming with ten year old pupils at the elementary school in Leskovec.First we presented the theory of global warming and showed them a movie The Big Ask, about how children could help. They had a slight problem understanding some professional terminology such as ozone hole, atmosphere and carbon diokside. We explained those in another way, using the words known to them.We told them that big companies had been doing most of the harm and that animals (like polar bears) also suffer, because soon they would not have any place to live.
