Carbon_footprint_status_14-04The ambassadors of Europe on Track are in their 4th day of travelling and they have already travelled more than 4 000 km around Europe.

In order to reduce the environmental impact of their travel, the ambassadors are not only trying to use the sustainable means of transport, but also measuring their carbon footprint.

But what is Carbon Footprint?

In a nutshell, Carbon Footprint is the shorthand to describe the best estimate that we can get of the full climate change impact of something. That something could be anything – an activity, an item, a lifestyle, a company, a country or even the whole world.

As we know, climate change is one of the greatest challenges of the modern age and reducing the carbon emissions is one of the main solutions for this issue.

When we first heard about Europe on Track at Y4PT we immediately thought… what a great idea! What a great idea to open the mind of young Europeans, to encourage them to discover new cultures and new ways of thinking and to make them travel throughout Europe. So we asked ourselves, how could we contribute to this project? How could we bring the transport related issues to the heart of the project?
