Are you interested in challenging yourself in order to gain new knowledge, insights, and make new contacts, while at the same time reducing your carbon footprint?

The 7 Day Challenge is a call to action inviting committed individuals around the world to practise sustainable urban lifestyles that will potentially improve their quality of life.  This toolkit contains a step-by-step manual on how to host a 7 Day Challenge which is done together with a Swedish Foreign Mission.

The challenge involves seven days of practical sustainable solutions focusing on three categories: Live, Move and Eat which the participants communicate in their networks with a possible follow up event. Participants are encouraged to use #7daychallenge in their social media work to highlight  and share insights of the activities with the initiative. The 7 Day Challenge has been successfully carried out in Nairobi https://vimeo.com/192598234 , Jakarta, Porto Alegre in Brasilia; more cities to come.
