Climate Change, Carbon Footprints, Environmental Program


This study crafted a school-based environmental program that aims to mitigate the harsh effect of too much carbon emission through pupils’ carbon footprints. This study used quantitative descriptive research. A basic survey questionnaire, climate change knowledge test, carbon footprint calculator, and qualitative validation of the material were the research instruments. Data were analyzed using percentages, one-way ANOVA, and thematic coding. The result showed that pupils were aware of the concepts of climate change however they are average contributors of carbon. This implied that whether they will receive climate change education they are still contributors this is due to the distance they travel using their private vehicles and the distance per liter of fuel consumption (of their private vehicles) contribute to their average level of individual carbon footprints. Hence, the School-based Environmental Program was crafted and validated and should be utilized by the pupils either in the school or in their houses due to the Homebased Learning mode of this pandemic.
