The Bigger Picture

Created through partnership between Community Research Connections ( and the University of Alberta, this animation explores the relationship between carbon footprints and income. Specifically, the video shares outcomes and ideas from research conducted by Kennedy, Krahn, and Krogman (2013, Egregious Emitters: Disproportionality in Household Carbon Footprints) examining this relationship in the context of individuals and households of Alberta. The video concludes with discussion on how individuals and communities can reduce carbon footprints (approached through a systems perspective) based on the research.
