> Ecological Footprints on the Internet
> This is the first FootNews newsletter, a newsletter that will be published
on an irregular basis. If you don't want to get any more FootNews mail, just
visit the Ecofoot site (URL as above) and cancel your subscription.
> General News about Ecofoot
> The Ecofoot site is now officially "open" for any would-be users, so
spread the word about it! As it has been developed on a totally
non-commercial basis, I have put zilch money in marketing and such things.
> There had been some delay as I didn't have the time to implement
equivalence factors, but the program now includes definable equivalence
values for whatever application.
> Some more general information about Ecofoot:

Ecofoot has a number of objectives: 1) to increase awareness of the
EF-concept, and 2) to make it possible to use EF-analysis as an integral
part in education at any level.

> After writing a data sheet, just email it back to me and I will put it out
on the Ecofoot site. The data sheet is after that available to your
students/users through the Ecofoot site. Also, if you want to include
instructions and/or comments for the data sheet application, just send me
these instructions and I will add them to the DataSheetComment-section. The
would-be users of your data sheet can then consult these instructions if any
problems should arise while running your data sheet(s).
> There are currently no general/standard data sheets available at the time,
but as soon as I get the latest household values from Mathis Wackernagel, I
will put them out on the Ecofoot site. Also, if anyone already has any
national data and would like to write a data sheet, you are more than
