Our biggest feat this year was launching a new mobile-friendly Footprint Calculator just in time for Earth Overshoot Day, which allows users to calculate their Footprint and their personal Overshoot Day. We were blown away by the number of users and positive responses and appreciate the constructive feedback we received to this beta version.
While we continue to work with our creative and IT partner Free Range to make small improvements in coming days and weeks, we are also already thinking about the next phase of development, including adding languages (French anyone?); country versions; and features to make it more empowering, informative, and fun. We also plan to spread the word to the countless number of teachers who use the calculator in environmental, geographic, and other courses at both the high school and university levels.
If you haven’t checked it out, please calculate your Footprint and personal overshoot day at www.footprintcalculator.org.
