Eco envy

Cascais Green Map is a website (funded by the local municipality) where local citizens can register their green habits and behaviour (such as using energy saving lamps, selecting garbage, buying local products, etc), in an effort to promote sustainability and good citizenship.

Why it matters

Think global, act local. With this interactive map, Cascais Municipality wants to spread the word about the best practices of its citizens, to try and  influence others. Small local businesses and associations are also invited to share their contribution. Another example of how recognising social acts can be used as a means to influence further donations. How could other social causes harness physical location and people’s connections to where they live to drive donations?
