Welcome to Drawdown EcoChallenge

Drawdown Ecochallenge is a customizable and solutions-oriented engagement program focused on reducing carbon in the atmosphere. The actions in the challenge connect to solutions highlighted in Drawdown, a book based on meticulous research that maps, measures, models, and describes solutions to global warming that already exist. Participants track and share their progress in a robust online platform, earn points for taking action, and see the real-time impact of their actions. The combination of collective action, camaraderie, and friendly competition makes change a little easier — and a lot more fun.

Drawdown 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 global warming. Over eighty actions within seven challenge categories provide participants with diverse options to reduce carbon usage.

Drawdown Ecochallenge is free and open to the public. Participants can join an existing team, create a new one, or join the Community team. Team captains can set the dates and length of their team’s participation based upon their own goals, timelines, and initiatives. (We recommend participating for at least three weeks in order to turn your actions into new habits you can sustain long-term.)

Through Drawdown Ecochallenge, we are connecting the dots between our actions, our impact, and our will 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!

Drawdown Ecochallenge is powered by the Ecochallenge Platform.

The Ecochallenge Platform is a signature offering of Ecochallenge.org (formerly Northwest Earth Institute), a sustainability organization that provides innovative social and digital tools designed to be a launchpad for emerging generations and sustainability leaders to experience “ah-ha” moments that lead to extraordinary environmental and social change. Ecochallenge.org also hosts the global People's Ecochallenge which is free and open to everyone, everywhere. Over 105,000 people from 101 countries have used the Ecochallenge Platform and the organization has engaged over 300,000 people throughout its 26-year history. The Ecochallenge Platform can also be used to create custom Challenges that meet the engagement and action goals of your workplace, college, or community.
