Event : Environmental FootPrint Service Project June 2022
The goal of the Environmental Footprint Service Project would be to totally offset the Environmental Impact of 26,000+ Rotarians descending on the City of Houston for 4 days.
We will use the Footprint App (www.footprintapp.org) for everyone to calculate their carbon footprint prior to and during the Convention. This project begins once registrants have downloaded the app at home. They will then begin calculating their individual carbon footprint. Daily, throughout the convention, we will be able to show how many pounds of CO2 had not gone into the environment as a result of attending the convention. The longer lasting impact of this project will be that globally Rotary Club members will learn how to reduce their Environmental Impact in their own communities.
