Welcome to Earth Month Ecochallenge: Drawdown

Earth Month Ecochallenge: Drawdown is a solutions-oriented engagement program focused on individuals taking action to reduce greenhouse gases in our atmosphere. The actions in this Ecochallenge connect to global solutions highlighted by Project Drawdown, a research-based organization that is leading the efforts to map, measure, model, and describe existing, amazing solutions to climate change.

Earth Month Ecochallenge is an engagement opportunity for sustainability leaders across business and education institutions to create teams, assign custom actions for team members to take, engage with their team throughout the Ecochallenge, and lead their team to create substantial positive impact. Every team member, including the captain, can select actions, check off their completed actions, track and share their individual progress, earn points for taking action, and see the real-time impact of their actions in a robust online platform. The combination of collective action, camaraderie, and friendly competition makes change a little easier — and a lot more fun.

Earth Month Ecochallenge provides tools and inspiration to turn intention into action, and gives participants a fun and social way to think about and act on proven solutions to reverse climate change. Over 100 actions within eight challenge categories provide participants with diverse options to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

What’s more, Earth Month Ecochallenge is free and open to the public! Everyone is welcome to select and take actions that best suit their lifestyle and meet their goals.

Through Earth Month Ecochallenge, we are connecting the dots between our actions, our impact, and our capacity to create significant global change. Each time our dots are connected, we take another step forward, toward our better shared future. So here we are. Let’s begin!
