OF2 - Our Footprints, Our Future
"(OF)2: Our Footprints, Our Future!" is an international initiative that encourages youth (ages 19 and younger) from around the world to use online tools and resources to measure their carbon footprint and develop ways to reduce their carbon usage. The goal is for one million students around the world to join together with their families, their schools, and their communities to reduce the total global carbon footprint. Through the (OF)2 project, students can input data on their lifestyles into a unique online youth calculator developed by Zerofootprint.net that has been adapted to recognize different cultural and socio-economic settings, housing, modes of transportation and food consumption. Students discuss how their lifestyle affects climate changes around the world. This project will enable students to see how their lifestyle is affecting the planet and to set goals to take specific action to individually and collectively reduce their carbon footprints.
The goal of this project is for one million students to work together to collectively reduce their (CO)2 emissions by 35,000 tonnes in one year, reducing global warming
