Join a community of solutionaries in connecting the threads of personal engagement and local action within the broader framework for healthier human and natural systems.

Ecocities need ecocitizens. It's not enough to have green buildings and renewable energy if we are living throwaway lifestyles! Fortunately, connecting the threads of your personal actions to broader ecocity ideals is not only possible, it's doable.

The Ecocity 30 Day Zero Waste Challenge is your opportunity to transform your everyday choices from gray to green. Take the Ecocity Materials Audit before you start (surveys and challenges will be sent to participants on June 11) and after you complete the challenge, share your journey on Instagram #EcocityGoingZero and follow along with other aspiring ecocitizens around the world.

In partnership with Liberated Spaces, and, the challenge includes topics like zero waste grocery shopping, recycling, walking and biking, saving water, composting and decluttering your life. You'll be taking the challenge with fellow Ecocity members and supporters worldwide - follow along and share/compare what ecocitizenship looks like in different cities and cultures.

How it works:

Step 1: Join the Ecocity 30 Day Zero Waste Challenge fundraiser above.
Step 2: Beginning June 11th we will email participants the Ecocity Materials Audit and the day by day details.
Step 3: On July 1st, the Challenge begins along with everyone else doing it around the world! Share your journey day by day on Instagram #EcocityGoingZero and follow along with other aspiring ecocitizens around the world.
Step 4: On July 30th, do your follow up Ecocity Materials Audit and compare your before/after numbers. Share your results (or not, it's entirely up to you).
Step 5: Receive a Certification of Completion and a digital Ecocitizen badge!

Along the way, learn more about Ecocity Builders and the global ecocity movement!
