Stamping on the Carbon Footprint – Exploring Sustainability Playfully (iStage 3)

Die CO2-Spielbilanz – Das Thema Nachhaltigkeit spielerisch entdecken (iStage 3)

At big sport events like a world championship the carbon footprint and the sustainability of the event are most of the time put aside by the collective euphoria of the visitors and the media during the occasion. But the negative consequences for the environment must not be neglected.

In this unit the students are introduced to this complex topic with a card game. This game approaches six aspects of sustainability: Light, travel, green grass, waste, noise pollution and food. With the help of information cards the students discuss various problems, broaden their background knowledge and learn to actively create references between their daily life and ecological questions.

The teaching unit is taken from the brochure ‘iStage 3 - Football in Science Teaching’ from the topic ‘biosphere’. The complete brochure can be ordered free of charge via mail ( or downloaded. It was developed by 20 teachers from 15 countries around Europe. The project was proudly supported by SAP.

Authors: Márta Gajdosné Szabó (HU), Janine Hermann (CH), Giorgia Messori (IT), Maaike Smeets (NL), Richard Spencer (GB)

All additional material for the brochure can be found here.
