To boost environmental awareness and action using technology, we started a partnership with Envirate. It was firstly introduced to ENO in 2017 when Envirate launched its award-winning mobile application at the international ENO’s Act Now conference on June 15th, 2017 in Joensuu.
Envirate allows anybody with a mobile phone give ratings on the environment around them wherever in the world. ”Envirate is a perfect tool for us and our global network. We will start to use Envirate in our ENO activities, and we will challenge our Green Cities around the world to join this huge environmental movement and rate our network’s cities”, acknowledges Mika Vanhanen, the founder of ENO.
Envirate and ENO launched together Global City Challenge 22 May – 15 June 2018. The competition will encouraged people to rate their environment according to their three main senses: look, hear, breathe. Schools in 34 countries took part to this first event by Envirate and ENO.
