  26. 26. Research for parents’ behavior on their ecological footprint • To see how big is the ecological footprint of our school parents there were 4 groups of questions: • Food (if they eat meat every day, if they throw what is left, if they buy local products) • Travel (The distance they cover with the car, if they prefer their country for vacation, how they go to school, how many cars they have) • Housing (how big is their house, what sources of energy use, how much electricity they waste, how much water they use, if they have a swimming pool, if they do recycling & composting) • Members of the family (how many brothers they have)
  27. 27. Results of the research • We disseminated 75 questionnaires and they returned only 32. • 62.5% of respondents have a large ecological footprint. That means that If everyone behaves like them we will need more planets in to meet their requirements because the natural resources are not enough. • 37.5% of the respondents have moderate ecological footprint and their presence on Earth is detrimental. • None of the respondents has the appropriate ecological footprint that suggests that they respect the planet Earth.
