Reducing our ecological footprint is something that starts at a personal level and will only be effective if we come to a truely green commerce worldwide. Øfootprint acts as a link between millions of people and supports the idea that the small changes we make can lead to large results.
The project intersects with recent public debate in Copenhagen about air pollution in the city. In collaboration with Senior Scientist Jørgen Brandt from The National Environmental Research Institute in Denmark a first prototype is developed for making an indicator that can be placed in the city and display local levels of pollution as well as pollution forecasts on individual streets. The project holds an open source script for displaying data from the Internet in a variety of forms.
