7 Day Challenge

7 Day Challenge is a concept elaborated by the Swedish Institute and Teams Initiative in Kenya offered to Swedish Foreign missions to promote the United Nations Sustainable Goals and Agenda 2030. The goal of the 7 Day challenge is to stimulate climate discussions locally and globally and to support increased interest and engagement in sustainable development

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.
