School Resources

Using Project Neutral, students will discover their household carbon footprint and see how they compare to a Group Dashboard with the aggregate results of their class or school.

This data brings the climate crisis down to an approachable, human level and acts as a powerful prompt to begin reconsidering daily life and what low carbon alternatives already exist.
