My Footprint is a challenge-based app aiming to engage the nation through tangible action and social sharing. It offers a variety of challenges across different topics and effort levels, all geared to gamifying the creation of new habits that are practical for all the family. The content is underpinned by storytelling and relevant articles that shows the impact WWF is having and the part users are playing. Social sharing is encouraged to help amplify the message and galvanise a movement. With more than 80k downloads and 110k challenges completed to date, the app is achieving its goals and building momentum to bend the 2030 climate curve.

Darragh Field, Director of Digital and Content at WWF-UK said “We have been amazed with Pocket App’s ability to deliver a robust app in such a short time. The team accommodated for our feedback throughout the process, to create a product that exceeded our expectations”.
