Climate Heroes

Ready to be an everyday Climate Hero

Register your community group for the 2 week Community Climate Challenge 

Starting on Earth Day - April 22nd

What is it?

Climate Heroes is team-based climate challenge for you and members from your community that supports you in taking climate friendly actions together.

  • Learn about your own climate impact and how your simple actions, added together with your team, do make a difference.
  • And have a fun friendly competition with other groups across Ireland to find Irelands most climate friendly community group. 

You can join with a team from your sports club, a mens shed or tidy towns group, a residents group, or simply a group of friends who want to do some good together. You make your own team however you want. 

The challenge simply invites you and your team to:

  • explore a range of climate friendly actions you can do on a day by day basis. These are listed on our unique climate challenge platform.
  • If you do any of these actions, you then log them on the platform.
  • See the impact you make as you record your actions.
  • See the challenge leader board with other teams and then go try beat them :) 

How do we win the challenge?

  • Join your team on the online platform on the 22nd of April.
  • Log your climate friendly actions daily over the duration of the two week challenge.
  • Encourage your team to log their actions and try new ones. 
  • The team who saves the most CO2 over the duration of the challenge wins - simple as that!
  • There will be prizes for the top three teams across Ireland plus a special award for the group that goes above and beyond.
