Ecological footprinting

If you’d like to measure your ecological footprint, the quiz used for Kāpiti Coast’s Greenest Street competition in 2010/11 and 2011/12 is from the Center for Sustainable Economy. We have some notes specifically for a NZ audience to accompany the quiz.  For a copy of the notes, contact sustainable.communities@kapiticoast.govt.nz.

The footprinting tool being used in 2013/14 is being developed by the The New Zealand Footprint Project and isn’t available online yet.  But if you would like a copy of the quiz to fill in and then send back to us, click on Ecological Footprint Quiz .

EPA (Environmental Protection Authority) Victoria, Australia has some simple notes and suggestions at to accompany their personal Ecological Footprint quiz. They also worked with the Global Footprint Network to develop a downloadable documentary film about ecological footprinting: The Ecological Footprint: Accounting for a Small Planet.

If you want to find out more about footprinting, Global Footprint Network is a leading international Ecological Footprint body. A not-for-profit organisation, they seek to develop the science behind footprinting and the definitions and standards that are applied.
