Do you know your ecological footprint?
During the winter and spring of this year, more than 300 student participants were surveyed in their classes. Collectively they reported relatively minimal interest in knowing their ecological footprint. However, after completing an ecological footprint analysis anonymously (available on the web here: footprint calculator) students responded favorably. Know your footprint and report your footprint!
Results as shown in the diagram below, show that participants are not only more interested in their ecologic footprint, but they are more motivated to change it and the more they learn they feel that they can make changes to reduce their ecological footprint.
