Calculating your own climate smart vacation
Travelandclimate.org is an online calculator launched in both Swedish and English, as part of the Climate Smart Vacation Network of West Sweden. The simple calculator is easy to use and provides people with knowledge to choose to travel with lower climate impact.
The tool lets you choose both transport and accommodation and based on this, provides estimated emissions per person for a trip – as a percentage of total emissions per year. The calculator also provides an estimated number of m2 of Arctic ice melting as a result of the emissions from the trip. The results can then be downloaded and shared on social media to raise awareness. Behind the initiative stands: the of West of Sweden via Klimat 2030, the University of Gothenburg, Chalmers University of Technology, West Sweden Tourism Board, The City of Gothenburg, Göteborg&Co, Mistra Urban Futures, Mistra Sustainable Consumption.
