The carbon emissions activity is a way to visualize our energy use and the comparative impact of energy systems around the world. Participants guess how many tons of carbon per person is emitted on average in different countries around the world. Discussion centers on the long-term and global impact of our energy use as well as the impact of historical emissions relative between countries.
After mapping out the ways we use energy throughout the day, participants can contextualize how deeply our daily actions are tied to our energy system. A complete transformation is needed to move to a just energy economy.
