Publisher: Kennesaw State University
Description: This lesson introduces students to the concept of ecological footprint, the overall impact of an individual on the environment. Topics include how ecological footprints are calculated, how individual footprints translate to entire nations or to the Earth, and the connection between ecological footprint and biodiversity. The students will consult some online resources on ecological footprint and use an online calculator to determine their individual footprints, make some comparisons, and examine how making some changes in their consumption would reduce their footprints.
