The People's Ecochallenge is a 21-day challenge to take action for a better shared future. From October 5 – October 26, 2022, we committed to trying and doing new things. We thought about and acted on proven solutions through five new categories based on sustainable climate actions: regenerating nature, nourishing food, balancing consumption, cultivating communities and enacting equity.

Fun actions encourage new habits. Small steps lead to big change. Together, we build a sustainable world and a healthy planet.

"Participating in the Ecochallenge for the past 5 years has really made me aware of the impact my lifestyle choices have on the environment, sustainability, and fellow humans. I have made small but meaningful and lasting changes that I believe will help create a better future for not only me but future generations."
