Keepie Downies

Turn the heating down and get warm by doing keepy uppies.

+2 Goals
10 m
Once per week

Milene Domingues, a Brazilian footballer, did the longest ever keepy-uppy with 55,198 touches of the ball.

Now try "keepy downies": the task is to turn your thermostat down by 1 degree. Then warm up by seeing how many keepy uppies you can do in 1 minute.

What difference does it make?

Heating uses 60% of our home energy. Most British household thermostats are set above 21°C. By turning down by 1°C your carbon footprint will come down and so will your heating bills.

This activity lowers your carbon footprint by:

7.6 KG CO₂

What do you need?

  • A football
  • An extra jumper for everyone
  • And find your boiler thermostat

What if we do not have a thermostat?

If you don't have a thermostat, it's hard to control the heat in your home. Most homes will have one somewhere - have you got a friend who is a plumber or electrician who could help sort out one for you?

I have set day and night programs. Should I lower temperature for both?

Turning down your daytime temperature by one degree is enough to score a goal. You will have a greater impact and save more if you do it at night as well!

What's the ideal temperature?

Everyone is different, but a healthy room temperature is around 20 degrees. You can quickly get used to different temperatures. Sometimes it's as easy as wearing a jumper inside.
