This is cCHALLENGE
cCHALLENGE is an effective and fun tool to create transformations to sustainability. It engages the most powerful solution to climate change that exists -- people.
When we say that the key to a sustainable future lies in people, we're not talking about forcing people to change their behaviors and habits. First of all, that never works! Second of all, it often creates even more resistance.
No, the real transformation happens when people recognize that they are part of something bigger. History shows us that collective movements are always energized by small, positive changes that create ripple effects over time.
That's why cCHALLENGE is a 30-day change experiment where participants receive information and insights, then reflect on and share their experiences. By approaching change as an experiment, we start to question our assumptions, habits and loyalties. In exploring “what if?” and “why not?” we start to see things differently. We see new solutions and understand that we are in fact part of those solutions.
For example, when we take on one small change, one small challenge, we start to talk about it, we share stories, and we inspire friends, colleagues, and people that we don't even know. In short, we expand our sphere of influence. Ripples become waves.
cCHALLENGE helps people to see where, why and how they make a difference. This opens up for real and lasting change – including the systemic changes that are needed to create an equitable and sustainable world.
cCHALLENGEis created by leading researchers on climate change and transformations to sustainability, and the program has been piloted in Norway.
