The eDemocracy Carbon Budget platform is decision making tool for fair and meaningful community engagement that helps policy makers and residents chart a path forward to implement GHG reduction strategies.
 
Communities can collaboratively design an emissions reduction plan together that:
 
  • Helps policy-makers reduce friction and find the social license to act 
  • Gives a broad cross-section of residents a meaningful way to be part of the process (even during social distancing)
  • Can be used for consultation or  educational purposes and can help increase participation in existing GHG reduction strategies
  • Generates detailed results similar to a poll and can identify points of friction and opportunities for success 
 
Salt Spring Island, BC was the first community to take part in the Carbon Budget pilot project intended to combine the Ethelo decision-making platform with micro-targeted public engagement strategies.
