Climate change and energy

Test your memory

This game will allow you to work on your memory but also to learn on the carbon footprint of products/individuals across the world.  The carbon footprint is defined as the total amount of greenhouse gases associated with a product or a person (through his consumption patterns), usually expressed in carbon dioxide equivalent (CO2e).

The tool thus focuses on the carbon footprint of 12 common consumption products and those of an average citizen in 12 different countries. It works like a classic Match Pairs Mind Game , the difference being that the two cards you need to match are not fully identical.

When the game begins, only the back of the cards appear (the same for every card). Click on one card then another, if they match they will stay face up. If not they will be turned back.

The level is completed only when you find all the pairs and the cards are all face up.

All the pairs are presented in the table below, as well as some explanations of the carbon footprint associated (carbon footprint expressed in grams or kg of CO2e). Have a careful look at this before you start playing.
