Comparing Carbon Savings

Age 11 to 18
Challenge Level

Here is a chance to gain a better understanding of how our lifestyle choices affect carbon emissions, and what actions we can take which might help us reduce our carbon footprint.

In this interactivity you will be asked to pair up actions (or inactions!) with the amount of carbon saved.  The carbon figures are fixed in place, so you need to move the descriptions of the activities around so that they match the amount of carbon saved.  When you think you have rearranged the cards correctly, pressing the submit button will show you which cards have been correctly placed.  You can then rearrange the other cards and check again.

There are many more cards than appear in a single game, so you may like to play several times so that you have a chance to see all of the cards.

Our thanks to Nicola Terry for providing most of these figures.
