    Abstract

    The overwhelming scientific consensus is that we are experiencing man-made climate change, largely contributed to by increasing levels of carbon dioxide in the Earth's atmosphere. Despite this growing scientific support, public support of man-made climate change has been dropping leading to concerns over the sustainability of lifestyle habits of the UK population, and the future of our planet.
    This project provides an Android application to help users lower their carbon footprint. This is achieved through calculating the users estimated carbon footprint and providing them actions to help reduce it. Progress is trackable as users can watch their footprint shrink as they complete more actions. The application will also allow users to earn badges as achievements for completing certain tasks, compete against their friends, integrate and share actions via Facebook as well as keep up to date with current climate change news are articles.
    The project also features an analytic dashboard to monitor progress and usage of the application, and a website for users to sign up for testing of the application.
