From the 15th to the 26th April, community groups across the country will be competing to reduce their carbon footprint by the largest amount. By logging daily climate-friendly actions on our specialised platform, they will instantly be able to see the impact of their individual and collective actions and compare their achievements with others nationwide. A series of global citizenship education workshops prior to the competition will frame the themes of food, consumption, energy and travel from a justice perspective, creating space for groups to connect, share and imagine new ways to tackle our collective problems.

This competition is fun, it’s positive, it’s habit-forming, and it’s a conversation-starter. Most importantly, it’s free for all community groups to join as it’s supported by Irish Aid’s GCE funding.  Last year, 525 participants in 68 teams reduced a total of 36,855 kg of CO2 equivalent, and we’re aiming to make this year more impactful than ever!
