Hello Saluki Green Action Team!

Clink the link below to join Drawdown EcoChallenge Saluki Green Action Team. Drawdown EcoChallenge is a 21 day program where participants take action to reduce their carbon footprint. Participants team up to track their progress and share it on an online platform to see how they are ranking in comparison to other teams. 

This EcoChallenge is based off of Project Drawdown, a book which maps, models, and measures the most effective ways to combat global climate change by the year 2050. The activities in the Drawdown EcoChallenge are based on initiatives seen in the book. For every action, the team is awarded points, the bigger the action, the more points awarded.
