In this lesson, students synthesize their data and ideas from Lesson 2. They share their results with the class and evaluate the effectiveness of the eco-audit. Students then strategize as a class and in small groups to plan how to implement progressive changes to more effectively manage transportation to and from school and reduce the CO2 emissions related to that transportation.

Key objectives for students
Synthesize and share conclusions from their transportation eco-audit.
Compare and contrast the eco-audit results from all the teams.
Evaluate the strengths and limitations of the information they gathered during the eco-audit.
Create a plan for recommending and implementing changes that will reduce the school’s carbon footprint associated with campus transportation activities.
