2016 personal footprint projects:

  • Evolve some short videos that teach and inspire personal footprint actions
  • Motivate, calculate, and plan personal footprints for transportation, housing, and food

We believe that any solution to the climate crisis will require stamping out greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from every house, car, airplane, ship, farm, factory, and other emitters, implying both personal and governmental responsibilities.

Personal footprint vision: Create footprint processes that go viral

2016 personal footprint goals:

  • X people have calculated their 2015 carbon footprint
