iStage 3 - Stamping on the Carbon Footprint

Teaching Material of the Month: Sustainability in Football

At big sport events concerns about the carbon footprint and sustainability are most of the time put aside. However, the negative consequences for the environment when having such events must not be neglected. In this unit the students are introduced to this complex topic with a card game which concerns six aspects of sustainability: Light, travel, green grass, waste, noise pollution and food. The material is taken from the brochure 'iStage 3 - Football in Science Teaching' and can be downloaded here:

This and other teaching units of the brochure 'iStage 3' are available in
Czech, English, French, German, Hungarian,
PolishSpanish and Swedish.
