Ecolife is a Flemish environmental NGO that develops and implements models and campaigns to induce behavioral change towards more sustainable lifestyles for a variety of groups.
Ecolife uses the Ecological Footprint concept to strengthen public campaigns and to calculate the environmental impact of specific organizations. Their first Footprint campaign – “Ecoscore” – helped over 100 households lower their Ecological Footprint. Another campaign, ‘groene voeten’ (“Green Feet”) focused on farming families and households, encouraging both groups to reduce their Footprints and to reduce the ‘distance’ between consumer & farmer. Ecolife has done extensive work in calculating Footprints of: churches, summer camps, Fair Trade shops, municipalities, and primary schools.
