We’re proud to announce the launch of the National Footprint Accounts 2018 Edition on our Footprint Explorer open data platform on Wednesday, March 28! We would like to invite you to two webinars to learn about our latest Footprint data and new features on the Footprint Explorer.
What are the National Footprint Accounts?
Global Footprint Network is addressing the biggest challenges of the 21st century: climate change and natural resource constraints. Our Ecological Footprint is the only sustainability tool that addresses these interrelated challenges in a single, scalable metric. The foundation of our work is the National Footprint Accounts, which we update every year based on the latest available data. The Footprint Accounts measure the ecological resource use and resource capacity of more than 200 countries from 1961 to the present. More than a dozen countries and countless government leaders and environmental organizations around the world have used this data to influence and develop sustainability policy.
As part of the 2018 Edition launch, Global Footprint Network is adding interactive maps to the Footprint Explorer. We are also adding dozens of new ways to sort data in our downloadable Public Data Package Excel file.
Learn more about the newest features for our Footprint Explorer open data platform and Public Data Package. We will share some new data stories from our National Footprint Accounts 2018 and case stories of government decision-makers using Footprint data to shape sustainability policy.
The global effort for sustainability will be won, or lost, in the world’s cities, where 60 percent of the world’s population is expected to live by 2030. Learn how our National Footprint Accounts can be scaled down for cities to shape local sustainability policy. Guest panelists will share projects in their cities.
