Welcome to UR’s International Education Week: Aotearoa New Zealand Ecochallenge

University of Richmond is celebrating New Zealand with actions and events inspired by cultural traditions and sustainability innovations across the region!


This one week challenge will allow you to choose behaviors that have a positive impact on you, the environment, and our campus community. Each action you adopt will earn points. At the end of the challenge, the three competitors with the highest point totals will win prizes inspired by New Zealand.


Take a Virtual Tour of New Zealand

Each morning, you can start the day with a few stops on our virtual tour of New Zealand. We’ll send you an email based on each day’s theme and actions with information about communities facing a sustainability challenge or innovating sustainable solutions in New Zealand. During our virtual tour you’ll learn about what makes New Zealand unique, environmental issues specific to the region, and what New Zealand is doing to support sustainable environments and communities.

Together, we're connecting the dots

This Ecochallenge is powered by the Ecochallenge Platform, a signature offering of At, we believe in solutions. Through our Ecochallenge Platform and Discussion Courses, we connect you with research-backed actions and with fellow humans who want to take these actions with you. We show you how our collective behavior -- and your personal transformation -- connects with the reality of a better shared future.

Over 110,000 people from 101 countries have used our Ecochallenge Platform, and we have engaged over 300,000 people throughout our 28-year history. Our Ecochallenge Platform can also be used to create custom Challenges that meet the engagement and action goals of your workplace, college, or community.
