AcronymECOVAL

Proposal titleECOVAL - Internet platform for environmental assessment and trends

AbstractTo date, environmental projects have tended to focus on the role that industry and big

business plays with regards to pollution. However, there is a complete dearth of accessible

information on the impact that the individual citizen has on the environment as a global

system. While many people are conscious of environmental issues, they have no means by

which to judge their overall impact on the environment. To this end, ECOVAL fills a vital

gap in the environmental knowledge base through the innovative development of an

internet platform that enables individuals to assess the impact of their lifestyle on the

environment. Through primary data collection, based on self-completed questionnaires,

ECOVAL's internet platform will build a database of individuals' CO2 emissions which, in

turn, will provide a tool for cross-regional and European-wide comparison. Ultimately, the

platform will enable EU decision makers to adapt their environmental policies to their

local population.
