Are you excited by the idea of a mobile application for Canberrans, that makes it easier, cheaper, social and fun for us to reduce our carbon footprints and connect to local eco-friendly products, services and community initiatives?

If so, then add your name and email, and leave a comment of support below. We'll compile these and include them in our grant application to the ACT Government. Applications close by 5pm Monday, 24 July, so be quick to leave your comment and share this with your friends before the deadline!

***UPDATE*** We are happy to announce we were successful in our application and have been awarded $25,000 in funding from the ACT Community Zero Emissions grant program! Thanks to everyone who left messages of support and encouragement on this page.

If you have suggestions for what you'd like to see in the app - we want to hear them! Feel free to include them in your comments below.

    We all need accountability with our carbon footprints. This is a great idea and needs to happen!

    Great idea, and Canberra is definitely an ideal market and starting point for such an initiative. I’d suggest gamification also , for example some level of status in the app for achieving goals coupled with social media sharing, for example someone might not normally share a post about the neighbourhood effect but if you award then some status they can share they may with their internet “neighbours” on social media thus perpetuating the effect.

    Groups like The Neighbourhood Effect are helping to lead the charge in the switch to a renewable world – as a citizen of the ACT, I am interested in seeing their work supported by Government funds.

    Great to see a solution to the mindblock that prevents people from making changes to their lifestyle in an attempt to tackle climate change – thoughts like ‘I don’t matter’, ’it’s big industry’. When obviously even small changes we make CAN make a difference.

    Anything that makes it easier for everyone to reduce their carbon footprint HAS to be a great idea. Via a app is common sense really.

    A one stop shop app for calculating and reducing our carbon footprint. This is definitely something we need!
