Join the WU EcoChallenge Team!

Choose challenges that stretch your comfort zone, stick with it for two weeks, and make a difference for yourself, your community, and the planet. Maybe you'll just stick with it!

How it works

Its easy to participate in the EcoChallenge, which is provided by our friends at the Northwest Earth Institute in Portland. Together we can reduce planetary impacts, and contribute to a healthy, vibrant, and sustainable future! Just follow these simple steps:

  1. Join the Willamette University EcoChallenge team. Even better, join with friends, colleagues, or family members!
  2. Choose at least one challenge. Some challenges are one-time while others are for the whole two weeks (and hopefully forever!)
  3. Report your accomplishments, track team progress, and share stories with other WU EcoChallengers on the mobile-friendly EcoChallenge dashboard.
  4. Make it to the post-Challenge party (stay tuned!)
