Your Ecological Footprint

Global Footprint Network: Your Ecological Footprint


We featured Mathis Wackernagel recently, and talked a little about his project, the Global Footprint Network. The Global Footprint calculates a countries Ecological Footprint, similarly to a way that a country might tout its GDP, and the statistic is becoming more and more accepted worldwide. This nifty quiz based on that concept will tell you you’re personal part of the Ecological Footprint. This is the Australian version, and versions for the US and Canada should appear shortly.

Ever wondered what you’re contribution to ecological impact is? The answer might surprise you, so try it out! Then imagine what your impact would be if you lived in an ecocity, and retake the quiz with that in mind.
