January is the most pleasant time to start life from scratch and become better. One of the trends, which is especially relevant in the coming year — eco-challenges, joint and individual.

The main example of the first category of ecological initiatives is Campus EcoChallenge project, which has been held since 2010 among various social categories: students, colleagues, friends. Participants are grouped together and choose different tasks for execution, for which they get points. Anyone can join the contest from anywhere in the world. Even at first sight insignificant actions, such as turning off water while cleaning teeth or using a reusable water bottle, can have a huge impact on maintaining the health of Earth — this is most important meaning of the project.

All challenges are divided into 9 categories, each of which presents examples of daily activities of participants:
