LET´S GO!
CHALLENGE #8

17.05.2021

After many months and various Corona restrictions, it seems that soon it will be possible again to tackle one or another activity and challenge. Maybe you’re looking forward to community sports, going to the theater, going to the pool, or eating your favorite pie at the coffee shop.

We’re looking forward to soon being able to bring in more sustainability and social engagement in our real life, not just digitally – together with family and friends.

Let’s tackle the current challenge together.

Let´s combine sustainability, green education and social engagement!   

Let´s do it.

LOOKING BACK ON CHALLENGE #8

17.05.2021 – 30.05.2021

Now we’re taking another break to share the best ideas from past challenges and exchange experiences. Our team will share personal successes & failures on social media.

LOOKING BACK ON CHALLENGE #6

02.05.2021

We have seen that there are a lot of regional projects on nature conservation and pollution. Many of us have spent time in regional nature in nature reserves, forests or at nearby waters.        

Interesting images were also shared in the category nutrition: The egg vending machine, regional milk at the supermarket in deposit bottles, and growing our own fruits & vegetables. Planting raised garden beds was also presented as a good family project for kids.

In our collage we show some of the ideas that were posted in social media.

LET´s go!
CHALLENGE #7

03.05.2021 – 16.05.2021

Our next CHALLENGE #7 is on: LET´S DO … MORE CONCIOUSLY starts today: In the last couple of months, we have collectively become more sustainable in many categories and areas of life.

Within the next 2 weeks, we want to be even more conscious about our lifestyle and our sustainable changes. In which area do you want to tackle the challenge this time?

Ideas & impulses can be found, as always, in our 8 categories on our website and also in our social media channels: conservation, energy, mobility, pollution, health, nutrition, consumption &lifestyle.

INSIGHTS INTO CHALLENGE #5

18.04.2021

For the first time, we approached this challenge internationally and received great solutions from the most diverse corners of Germany and also from far away. Many people followed our impulse on plogging and collected trash. We have seen beautiful nature and gardens that have been created according to the principle of “more biodiversity“.

In our collage we present some of these ideas.

Together, projects for nature and animal protection can be implemented more easily. Therefore, in the next challenge, we call on people to inform themselves about local projects and to become active.

LET´s GO!
CHALLENGE #6

19.04.2021 – 02.05.2021

Over the next 2 weeks, we will tackle CHALLENGE #6: Let´s do … regional together.  We are looking for regional solutions for a more sustainable lifestyle. We are particularly excited about the regional and also international differences and look forward to learning from each other. We look forward to hearing which regional projects you have become active in, or which projects you are currently actively implementing.

Ideas & impulses can be found, as always, in our 8 categories on our website and in our social media channels: nature conservation, energy, mobility, pollution, health, nutrition, consumption & lifestyle. Enjoy our current challenge.

A FEW IMPRESSIONS FROM OUR BREAK.

31.03.2021

Taking a break – 01.03.-04.04.2021

We used the break to get in touch with you and get your feedback. If you also want to give us feedback, send us an email:

Which challenge did you like the most? Do you have an idea for another challenge?

What were your successes / failures? Were you able to implement things permanently and sustainably?


We are already bilingual on social media. Our website will also be available in English in the coming months.

We also used the break to see which of our changes in everyday life can actually be implemented permanently and sustainably: Shopping habits and vegetarian/ vegan recipes, waste reduction, more sustainable alternatives for cleaning, washing and personal care.

LOOKING BACK ON CHALLENGE #4

28.02.2021

Let´s do … without – 15.02.-28.02.2021

We have successfully mastered the 4th challenge and that again in many different categories. We cooked without meat and tried vegetarian or vegan dishes. We did not use the car and used the bicycle or walked.

Other solutions to our challenge were: Let´s do … without disposables and use reusable cups and / or reusable packaging. Let´s do …without advertising and publicity. Let´s do … without littering in nature.

Even in these difficult times, when we have to do without many things, we have managed to eliminate some things from our daily lives – some even permanently.

Let’s strive together for permanent and sustainable changes. Keep up the good work.

WHAT HAVE WE ACHIEVED SO FAR?

01.03.2021

4 Challenges – 04.01.-28.02.2021

Over the past 8 weeks we have challenged our actions and tested and shared many new things. Some were easy to implement; others were rather difficult. We have combined sustainability and social engagement.

We tackled our very broad challenge in different categories:

We reduced packaging waste, went shopping at the weekly market or the unpackaged store.

We cleaned nature and collected trash.

We saved energy and resources.

We took care of our health and were active in nature.

We stayed mobile, but switched from cars to bikes whenever possible.

We ate a vegetarian, regional and seasonal diet whenever possible.

We were active in biodiversity and nature conservation.

We reflected on our lifestyle and reduced our consumption.

We donated clothes and send cards and flower seed packets to our friends.

Thank you & keep up the good work.

INSIGHTS INTO CHALLENGE #3

14.02.2021

Let´s do … analogue – 01.02.-14.02.2021

Again 2 weeks are over. Together we have successfully mastered the 3rd Challenge.

We have found different solutions in our everyday life. Many of us have also brought in social aspects. Cooking & baking recipes, book & game tips were exchanged & invitations to go together to the unpacked store were made. Homemade bird feeder dumplings were shared with family & friends. Postcards were sent and small seed bags (for wildflowers & herbs) were made & given away. Thus, we have made a commitment to the environment, animals & family & friends – and we did it in lockdown, too. Together, projects for the protection of nature and animals can be implemented more easily; as well as sustainable changes in everyday life.

Let’s continue to be inspired by small changes to become more sustainable. In our collage we present some of these ideas.

lET´S GO!
CHALLENGE #4

15.02.2021 

Let´s do … without – 15.02.-28.02.2021

Let’s get creative and find ways together to get rid of things or habits in our private & professional everyday life. We can save resources together; save water and CO2, avoid plastic waste and rethink our consumer behavior.

Ideas & impulses are available in our 8 categories: Conservation, Energy, Mobility, Pollution, Health, Nutrition, Consumption & Lifestyle. And again, if you don’t have an idea, you can find concrete ideas & impulses in the categories on our webpage.

Input is also available in social media. Take a look at the successes and perhaps also the failures of your fellow campaigners on Facebook and Instagram and let yourself be actively inspired.

Enjoy tackling our current challenge.

And enjoy the time in nature and the beautiful winter. The picture was recently taken in a german forest in NRW.

A FEW IMPRESSIONS FROM CHALLENGE #2

31.01.2021

Let´s do … clean – 18.01.-31.01.2021

During the last 2 weeks, we worked together to reduce trash and make our everyday lives cleaner.
Each of us found different solutions – especially in the production of our own cleaning agents and hygiene products. Especially our kitchens and bathrooms are shining at the end of this challenge.

Many have inspired us to become more sustainable with small changes: From reusable cleaning cloths to our own cleaning agents, to solid soaps and shampoos and homemade deodorant cream. Also the idea to make a food and shopping plan seems to us easy to implement to avoid food waste. In our collage we present some of these ideas.

LET´s GO!

Let´s do … different – 04.01.-17.01.2021

Over the past 2 weeks, we have been tackling the challenge together with you. Each of us have found different solutions in our everyday lives.                                                        Some have teamed up and have gone jogging together, collected trash together while jogging (plogging), or teamed up to go shopping sustainably and locally at the weekly market. In our collage we present some of these ideas: We’ve been sporting together in nature. We sowed plants. We recycled, tried upcycling and reduced waste. We have shopped locally & seasonally & tried vegetarian & vegan recipes.  Thank you to everyone who participated in our challenge.
