Climate Week Challenge

Register now so that teams in your school or organisation can enter Britain’s most popular environmental competition. There are one-hour and one-day versions, which can be done at any time during Climate Week (4-10 March). Over 130,000 people take part.

The Climate Week Challenge is part of Climate Week, which aims to inspire a new wave of action to help people live and work more sustainably. Climate Week is backed by celebrities such as Sir Paul McCartney and organisations ranging from the NHS to the National Association of Head Teachers. Over half a million people attend 3,000 events.

The Climate Week Challenge is an exciting activity for teams of four to six. It develops innovation, enterprise, environmental awareness and the skills of delivering to a deadline. The one-day version is judged by a panel that has included adventurer Ben Fogle, TV presenter Kate Humble and footballer Gary Neville.

The actual challenge will be revealed to teachers and organisers one week in advance, so that they can read the materials beforehand if they wish. It should be kept secret from those participating until they start! There are eight age categories, but everyone – from primary pupils to senior managers – will be given the same core task. Any number of teams can be entered.

Register in advance
To participate, you must register your organisation in advance. You can register now by going to the Climate Week website or by emailing your organisation name and contact details
