You can select up to 5 daily actions and 20 one-time actions.

Please note: Daily actions give you a chance to do an action multiple times. You don't need to complete each daily action every day, but the goal is to create new habits.

If you miss a day, don't worry — you can complete actions for any previous day. The competition does close on the last day of your team's check-in period at 11:59pm in your time zone, however, so make sure to complete your check-ins before then!


During Drawdown Ecochallenge, you choose your actions, then earn points for completing your actions, engaging your community, and sharing your story. Your points add up to demonstrate your impact, help your team win competitions, and improve your team's overall ranking for grand prizes.

Earning points during Drawdown Ecochallenge is intended to add an element of gamification to the experience of participating in a behavior change challenge. While earning points and engaging in friendly competitions are fun ways to interact with the event, the primary objective of participation is to drive positive action in your life and your community. Any attempt to abuse the point awards system to maximize the number of points earned goes against the intention of this event. We understand that seeing your point tally increase and your name move up the leaderboard is gratifying on its own but please understand that this event is about creating a sustainable world, together. Please report any suspected point related abuses to or refer to our Community Agreements to learn more about how to show up during Drawdown Ecochallenge.
