Digital Eskimo have been commissioned to assist the 3 Councils to reduce the community-wide Ecological Footprint of the Eastern Suburbs area.
The project aims to educate these communities in sustainable practices to encourage widespread behaviour change. We will engage in research and develop the branding, digital strategy, design and implementation of the project. Environmental issues are both contextual and complex, and have the potential to overwhelm otherwise committed or interested members of the community.
We will investigate the use of technology to engage local residents with these issues, encourage them to learn, share their stories and ultimately change harmful habits and behaviours. The Project will involve best practice water management in Woollahra Council, an organic food recycling program in Randwick and Waverley Councils and a retro-fitted sustainability ‘demonstration house’.
