Our class had to use a different ecological footprint calculator from most other schools in this project due to the suggested one not including Ghana as one of the applicable countries. This calculator we actually used was great, it was highly detailed and allowed for generalisations and rounding. However one set back was that the calculator didn't allow for carbon offsetting therefore didn't give the most accurate representation of how much carbon we produce. Secondly we were instructed to play a game made by the BBC where we had to lead a country and along the road meet carbon footprint reduction goals along the way. If you mismanaged your money and or resources your nation would fail. My leadership did manage to bring the country through the goals but however did decimate the economy. This game showed how hard it is for nations to meet carbon footprint reduction goals, especially if they are on the poorer side such as Ghana, the country I live in now.
