How to participate:

Pictures: Take at least one picture illustrating your experience during the eco-challenge week.

Description: At the end of the challenge week describe your experience in a few sentences and separately indicate what was your challenge. During the meeting we will be guessing what kind of challenge was chosen by that person.

Sending information and registration: Please register by filling in the form below, upload your challenge pictures and write short descriptions in the registration form. Registrations are welcome until 26th of April, 12:00. Registration to the event is required.

Important notes: (i) You can use the list above as inspiration (e.g., you might decide that you will not use a car only for certain trips) or you can come up with your own challenge which is not mentioned in the list. (ii) You should choose a challenge which you do not normally incorporate into your daily life (e.g., if you never use a paper towel, you shouldn’t choose a challenge to use cloths instead of paper towels).

Please note that most important thing of all – to have fun during this process!
