It is time for people to be part of the solution, people who want to contribute with a more sustainable lifestyle related with green environment, carbon footprint reduction, energy efficiency.
As already mentioned, resource efficiency is a top priority in the SEE policy-making agenda, especially in light of excessive consumption of energy due to users/inhabitants established behavior, often uncontrolled waste production as well as lack of efficient coordination measures and awareness regarding how to use resources in a more conscious manner.

Idea is built around Green2Day platform, helping municipalities and cities to increase awareness about green environment and to boost its implementation. Joining the community platform users (both individuals and companies) can estimate their own energy efficiency and carbon footprint level, so called “green level”.

Users can collect “green points” and increase their “green level” by improving in all above stated points (reducing energy resources consumption, sorting the waste, using more bicycle or foot, using municipality network of electrical vehicles, …) monthly, quarterly, yearly,… They set a new higher “green level” target, with higher the target, higher is the risk of achieving it and higher the benefit. Benefits are reduced tax, special electrical power fees, discounts for usage of municipality network of electrical cars and bikes, discounts for usage of public
