Piedmont launches new tool to empower local residents to reduce their carbon footprint.
The Piedmont Climate Challenge uses a fun and simple website to create a friendly competition among residents to explore solutions, take actions and earn points for reducing their household’s greenhouse gas emissions. Households can share points with a team, neighborhood and community group to win prizes and bragging rights.
Nearly 40 households have already signed up for the Challenge since its launch at the Harvest Festival Sept. 30. The Challenge will run through March, followed by an awards celebration in April to recognize winners who took the most actions and earned the most points. The sooner you sign up, the sooner you can start racking up points!
Once you have a profile, you can visit your dashboard to start or join a team (10 or fewer friends or neighbors) or join a community group. You earn extra points by starting a team and recruiting friends and neighbors. Hosting a casual party is a great way to get started, and Piedmont Connect can arrange for a volunteer Ambassador to demo the Challenge site and features.
