EcoChallenge Platform

EcoChallenge Platform

Powered by Northwest Earth Institute, EcoChallenge is an online, multi-sector social platform for sharing, learning, and taking measurable action on sustainability solutions to create widespread, transformative change. The free challenges use behavioral psychology and gamification to create long-term changes in habits. Actions are organized by categories and difficulty levels with options for customizing individual goals. A pre-assessment tool documents existing behaviors for data analysis. Curated resources help participants be successful in the actions they choose.


What is the EcoChallenge?

We challenge you to choose actions to reduce your impact and stick with it for the duration of the challenge. You design your Challenge and set a goal that stretches your comfort zone and makes a difference for you, your community and the planet.

Why take the EcoChallenge?

The EcoChallenge is an opportunity to change your life for good. Common wisdom says it takes at least two weeks to change a habit: if you can stick with a new behavior for 14 days in a row, you’re a lot more likely to keep it up forever. EcoChallengers share their progress and earn points for taking action. The combination of collective inspiration, camaraderie and friendly competition makes change a little easier — and a lot more fun.
