This is the final product of an international Erasmus+ project “Generation of Sustainability”. Students in 5 countries (Italy, Croatia, Lithuania, Greece and Slovakia) worked collecting and processing statistical data and generated “Carbon Footprint Calculator”. Carbon footprint is the total amount of carbon dioxide (and other greenhouse gases) released into the atmosphere as a result of our activities. Increased greenhouse gas emissions have a direct impact on climate change.

Calculate the estimate of your carbon footprint, find out your personal impact on the environment and learn what you can do to reduce it.
