Our Challenges

Spark Student Skills & Engage in Eco-Learning

Embark on an exciting journey of discovery in the ultimate learning experience! GreenLearning’s FREE educational resources and lessons will guide you and your students through their chosen challenge’s learning. Then, you can put that learning into action!

Students will invent solutions for a sustainable future as part of a quest to help the planet. In the process, they will build competencies such as critical-thinking, collaboration, communication, and decision-making.

Here's how it works!

Capture the story of your students’ learning and project(s) and once you have completed your challenge you can submit your students’ work and supporting media to be judged by our panel of industry experts for a chance to win a cash prize! Prizes are awarded to the top 3 entries for each challenge, and all participants are celebrated and given honourable mentions!

Young people represent the future! We have a responsibility to elevate and celebrate their climate action. Winners or not, your students’ projects and their achievements will be displayed in our Challenge Showcase! You may be able to participate in an in-person or virtual award ceremony and everyone will be able to see the small but mighty strides you and your students have taken to ensure a greener world for future generations.
