Our New #pledgefortheplanet: New grant to help one city or region reduce its Footprint

Calgary skylineTo push Earth Overshoot Day later on the calendar, we need not only individuals but also cities, regions and nations to embrace this challenge.

Thanks to a new grant, we at Global Footprint Network can make a #pledgefortheplanet to work with one city, region or country that wants to reduce its Ecological Footprint – PRO BONO.

What Global Footprint Network offers: We will analyze a specific project or program of the city or region. Potential projects include a new urban development, an energy-efficiency policy, an electric car fleet purchase, or solar panel subsidies, to name just a few of the endless possibilities. We will assess both the Ecological Footprint saved by the project and its potential financial returns. See more on our framework here.

If you are interested, email us at media@footprintnetwork.org. All we need is a simple email that tells us who you are and what you would like to do. We will then set up short phone interviews to determine which project would be the best match.
