Why Audubon Alaska Is Taking the Drawdown Ecochallenge
In honor of the 50th anniversary of Earth Day, we are forming an Audubon Alaska team to participate in the Drawdown Ecochallenge. We are challenging ourselves to reduce our climate footprint, become responsible global citizens, and keep ourselves busy in new ways as we spend more time at home. We are very fortunate to be able to take on these climate-friendly ecochallenges, while also staying safe and healthy. But we recognize that many of our friends and neighbors do not have the capacity to do this right now. If you are able, we invite you to join us for the benefit of our communities, for the benefit of our environment, and for the benefit of the birds.
About the Drawdown Ecochallenge
The Drawdown Ecochallenge is a customizable and solutions-oriented engagement program focused on reducing carbon in the atmosphere. The actions in the challenge connect to solutions highlighted in Drawdown, a book based on meticulous research that maps, measures, models, and describes solutions to global warming that already exist. Participants track and share their progress in a robust online platform, earn points for taking action, 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.
How You Can Participate
If you are interested, we invite you to join the Audubon Alaska team or start your own team. Learn more at Drawdown Ecochallenge. This challenge will run from the week of Earth Day (starting April 19) until summer solstice (June 20).
