About Get Green and the Duluth Pilot Project
The GetGreen app was developed to help individuals and organizations understand and have impact on the climate crisis, by acting on their intent and values. The platform recommends personalized sustainable challenges, habits and product options, with actions that can be taken daily. The platform is customizable to help organizations educate and drive action on sustainability. For the 2022 pilot, GetGreen was matched with Ecolibrium3 in Duluth to develop a customized version of the mobile application for a gamified way to engage folks in the Duluth Citizens’ Climate Action Plan. Creating daily activities that include actions in support of local and lower carbon transportation and transit options, local food, composting and waste reduction, energy efficiency, renewable energy, and other efforts to reduce climate impacts through individual behaviors and advocacy.
