GetGreen Duluth

Putting the Duluth Citizens’ Climate Action Plan in the palm of your hand.  

About GetGreen Duluth

As we work together to build a community that is sustainable and equitable, it is important to work as individuals and as a community to reduce our greenhouse gas emissions. To make this process easier, Ecolibrium3 has formed a partnership with GetGreen and Grid Catalyst to lead the GetGreen Duluth app pilot project. GetGreen is a mobile app that helps individuals make an impact on the climate. The GetGreen Duluth pilot program expands the app to include actions from the Duluth Citizens’ Climate Action Plan, aiding individual and collective action by providing sustainable options and alternatives to everyday tasks to create a daily habit of climate stewardship. 

In the app, users can browse through actions, such as advocating for expansion of the Duluth Natural Areas Program, riding one of Duluth’s electric buses, and planting native species in your yard. When app users complete actions, they earn leaves representing the amount of carbon they have offset. The leaves then result in a direct investment in the Duluth community by supporting the Duluth Micromobility Hub in Lincoln Park.

Duluth Citizens' Climate Action Plan

The Duluth Citizens’ Climate Action Plan (Duluth CCAP) is a citizen-led effort to inspire community-wide action to reduce Duluth’s greenhouse gas emissions and envision a future for Duluth that is sustainable and equitable. In June 2018, the City of Duluth adopted a goal of reducing its greenhouse gas emissions 80% by 2050 as part of its Imagine Duluth 2035 Comprehensive Plan. While this was great, City emissions account for only 4% of community-wide emissions in Duluth. The Duluth CCAP developed as an effort to spread this greenhouse gas reduction goal community wide.
