Abstract: Human activities are deemed to be increasing the emission of greenhouse gases (GHGs) into the atmosphere. The greenhouse effect is a natural process but there are hypotheses that say that it is very likely that is being enhanced by the concentration of those gases in the atmosphere which is considered to be the cause of climate change (see for instance IPCC, 2007). Challenging issues such as GHG emissions and Climate Change may seem very remote, but there are ways that can help to better perceive our contribution to such problems. And that is where a new mobile application ¿ mobGAS© ¿ comes into play. mobGAS© aims to make the connection between daily activities and the emissions of GHGs and when possible suggest changes to improve individual performances. It is a kind of diary of users¿ behaviour through the emissions of GHGs.
