1. Learn about climate change solutions

Step 1 - Join the TEAM
The Drawdown Challenge is a solutions-oriented engagement program focused on reducing carbon in the atmosphere. The actions within this challenge connect to solutions highlighted in Project Drawdown's work - research that maps, measures, models, and describes solutions to global warming that already exist. Participants choose actions, complete those actions, and track and share their progress using the online platform. When they check off their completed actions, they earn points 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.

Step 2 - Choose to take ACTION
Once you join our team, find actions that speak to you. You can choose as many as you like! There are LOTS of categories to choose from each with many action items. Some are one time actions, while other you complete daily. Want to take action as a family? Sign up with one account and let each family member choose their own action(s).
Step 3 - Create a collective IMPACT
Once you choose your actions, you will complete those actions from October 4th through October 25th. The interactive platform will automatically calculate your impact on your dashboard and award you point. Bonus! As a team, we will be able to see what our collective impact is.
Participants who accumulate 350 or more points will be entered into a random drawing at the Drawdown Challenge Celebration!
Step 4 - Celebrate TOGETHER
Here at the Sustainability Institute, we believe that Sustainability efforts should be celebrated! We want to do just that; celebrate our collective impact and successes together. As a team participant, join us in celebration on October 28th for the Inspiring Sustainability Awards & Drawdown Challenge Celebration. We will be announcing our two 2021 Inspiring Sustainability Award winners along with sharing the accomplishments of our team from the Drawdown Challenge. Participants of the Drawdown Challenge who accumulated at least 350 points will also be entered into a random drawing for some great local prizes which will be given away at the event.
