The increase of both the human population and natural resource consumption has led to a Global Biodiversity crisis. There is an obvious need to regulate industrial activities to tackle CO2 emissions into the atmosphere. Still, we can take many other actions at the local scale, including our consumption behavior. The GLOBAL FOOTPRINT NETWORK is a project that allows you to estimate your footprint based on consumption behavior (17 questions). In this exercise, you will calculate your (and four more) footprint twice. First, you take the survey, and it’ll give a number. Then, you (and the others) will think about what realistic changes in your consumption behavior are possible. Then, the footprint is re-calculated, taking into consideration the new consumption behavior.
Examples of changes in consumption behavior:
Willingness to consume animal-based product less often
Willingness to buy more locally grown, unpackaged food
Willingness to find an alternative source of energy (solar energy)
Willingness to reduce trash production (that will include reduction of plastic bag use)
Willingness to reduce CO2 emissions produced by transportation by carpooling, using a smaller car, using public transportation, motorcycle, electric vehicle, bicycles, and flying less often.
Step by step instructions:
Go to the Global Footprint Calculator
Follow the site’s instruction and calculate your Global Footprint
Write down your Global Footprint and make sure you know what its meaning is
Think about what type of behavior and how much you are “realistically” willing to chance
Re-calculate your global footprint with your modified behavior and compare the result to your previous value. Annotate how much it changes and interpret this difference.
Interview four more people (friends, relatives, any other) and repeat the steps above
Write a one-page essay taking into consideration the following points:
What does the footprint value indicate?
What were the average values (all five members) befgore and after you thought about your consumption behavior?
Out of these previous five alternatives, what are the consumption behaviors you and others were more prompt to change, and which ones you are unwilling to modify?
What is your conclusion of this exercise?
