What is Carbon Speed Dating?

Carbon Speed Dating works just like any speed dating event, but with a tiny twist….you get matched up for your dates according to your carbon footprint. You get to have a great time, meet some new people, and hopefully find somebody you want to reduce your carbon footprint with at the end of the day!

The idea with these events is to engage students who wouldn’t normally get involved in green stuff. Finding out your carbon footprint and sharing it with someone else can be a great conversation starter - and just imagine the low-carbon date opportunities if you find your carbon solemate! Candle-lit veggie dinner dates, a Can Film Festival romantic movie, a long walk or cycle ride for two….

How will it work?

Think big - take over a student union club night or a regular speed-dating event and create a romantic low-carbon atmosphere with veggie drink & snacks, recycled Valentine’s card-making, candles and bicycle powered sound systems. Get people to work out their carbon footprints either using our online carbon calculator or printed resources. Then match them up for a series of speed dates!
