April 1-22: participate in the Columbia River Gorge EcoChallenge
On the first Earth Day in 1970, 20 million people in the United States took a stand to demand a better way forward for our planet. Here we are fifty years later, and Earth Day is now recognized as the planet’s most significant annual civic engagement event. Our recognition of Earth Day now takes up the entire month of April in many places around the world.
The Columbia Gorge Earth Month EcoChallenge helps you put your Earth Month intentions into action by providing you with the information, motivation, tools, and community to make a difference for our planet Earth.
Here’s how it works:
- Earth Month Ecochallenge is a 22-day environmental and social engagement program. From April 1 – April 22, you select actions to take that align with your individual values and make a 22-day commitment to complete those actions, all the while practicing and reinforcing good habits. For every completed action, you earn points and create impact.
- Choose actions that are practiced one-time or daily, and choose them from categories such as Wildlife, Freshwater, Oceans, People, Food, Climate, and Forests. Whatever actions you select, know that you are building habits that ensure a better shared future for us all.
- You’ll join a team of community members from around the Columbia Gorge taking action for Earth Month. Your points contribute to our team’s total points, and your impact contributes to our collective impact.
How to sign up:
1. Sign up here to join the EcoChallenge platform and the Columbia Gorge Climate Action Network team. That automatically joins the team, or search for the “Columbia Gorge Climate Action Network” in the sign-up process.
2. Choose your actions for the month. The EcoChallenge platform connects you with research-backed actions and with fellow humans who want to take these actions with you. The EcoChallenge shows how our collective behavior — and your personal transformation — connects with the reality of a better shared future.
The Columbia Gorge Earth Month Ecochallenge is free to join and everyone is welcome!
