At the end of April we wrapped up our first annual Drawdown EcoChallenge, with over 7,000 participants and 760 teams. During the 21-day EcoChallenge hosted in partnership with Project Drawdown, participants made over 530 donations to support causes related to climate change, volunteered over 200 hours, and contacted public officials over 2,000 times about the issues we care about. Furthermore, over 150,000 pounds of CO2 were diverted during the EcoChallenge, and participants spent over 3,000 hours learning about climate change solutions. With participants representing 50 US states and 65 countries, over 75,000 actions were recorded.
We want to congratulate our winning team, Asheville High School, who engaged over 500 people during the Drawdown EcoChallenge. We also want to congratulate our other top teams: Taisugar Circluar Economy, Built Ecology and Friends, Comerica Bank, Arrowstreet West, OPSIS Architecture, PAE Seattle, MSR Design and Lincoln High School in Portland, Oregon. Congratulations!
