Urban EcoMap Introduced by Cisco with San FranCISCO
As part of Earth Day, Cisco and the City and County of San Francisco (our namesake!!) today announced Urban EcoMap, an Internet-based tool that enables cities around the world to provide smarter climate change information for their citizens. For the first time, Urban EcoMap gives every person the ability to see the collective results of individual climate change actions, while also motivating people to make responsible environmental choices and creating competition among neighborhoods to reduce their carbon footprint. Urban EcoMap provides information on carbon emissions from transportation, energy and waste among neighborhoods, organized by ZIP codes. In this video, Cisco’s Kathy O’Connell interviews San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom about Urban EcoMap and what it can mean for the citizens individually and for cities collectively.
