You are curious about the carbon footprint of your class, which areas are causing the most emissions and if you can do something about it? We are too, and we look forward to your feedback at the end of the calculator.
To enter the data into the calculator easily, gather all the information in advance. For this, we have created the following checklist for you:

Interesting questions that you could also discuss in the context of the CO2 calculator:
► Why does humanity emit so many carbon emissions?
► Who is responsible for which carbon emissions?
► How can carbon emissions be reduced?
You have the possibility to protect so much forest with Wilderness International that the amount of emissions equivalent to your carbon footprint is bound in biomass. The many trees and plants in the forest carry out photosynthesis. They absorb CO2 from the air and store it in their biomass.
Especially old-growth rainforests have stored huge amounts of carbon. They cool the environment and stabilize the climate. By protecting them, it is prevented that they are deforested and large amounts of carbon are released back into the atmosphere. At the same time, important habitats and biodiversity are preserved.
→ 1m2 of Peruvian rainforest has bound 60 kg of CO2.
