The small Carbon Footprint Game
Mobile and ready to use instantly, the small Carbon Footprint Game ensures you can have impactful climate change education right at your fingertips.
The game uses the science data from the book ‘How Bad Are Bananas?’ by Mike Berners-Lee to create a fun carbon footprint comparison game based on a ‘higher/ lower’ principle.
At a quarter of the size of the BIG Carbon Footprint Game, the learning is just as impactful only now you can pack the game into your rucksack and share knowledge and engage people everywhere you go!
It’s a carbon conversation tool, a critical thinking developer and a fun game all delivered in an easily digestible format.
The table top design, means it’s mobile, easily transported and can be brought out at any event, including meetings! Meaning you can share climate knowledge and engage others anywhere.
Accessible and interactive learning style
The playing cards use everyday items, enabling players to personally identify with climate issues rather than coming to the learning out of context. Creating a more accessible, fun, and fast approach which has a lasting effect on the learner.
Effective climate learning package
To ensure the most impactful learning for game facilitators, every small Carbon Footprint Game comes with access to our online Carbon Academy, an e-learning climate educator programme that provides the skills and climate knowledge for game facilitators to confidently teach climate education and convey powerful messages that instil action.
Instant set-up and easy to use
Take the cards out the carry case and just like that you are ready to play! With your Carbon Academy licence you can access facilitator ‘cheat sheets’ to enable you to play the game straight away.
Climate education is often dull, dry and feels over complicated. Using a game we put ‘fun’ as the main objective, connecting the players actions, choices and behaviours together to empower individuals to make impactful choices.
All data used in the game comes from the book ‘How Bad are Bananas?’ book by Professor Mike Berners-Lee and is the most up-to-date compendium of carbon footprint research in the UK.

How does it work?
Guided by the game facilitator, players use the game playing cards to compare any pairings of everyday items, and in each pair they have to guess which item has the higher carbon footprint.
gET THEM THINKING
The comparisons are designed to get players thinking about where items come from, what makes up their carbon footprint and encourages them to use their own experiences of the world to reach an answer- creating a game that is a stealth bomb for delivering climate science!
The game helps instil a ‘carbon instinct’ in players – higher impact activities become less easy to ignore and players motivate themselves to make changes.
