Share this Post:

‘A world you like. With a climate you like.’ is the European Commission’s new communication campaign on climate action.

The World You Like Challenge wants creative and innovative minds from across the EU to put their low-carbon initiatives to the test and inspire others to follow suit.

‘The World You Like Challenge is a great opportunity to move beyond mere talking about climate change. By submitting your project, you show that building a world we like with a climate we like is feasible and affordable. And it won't make our lives dull and grey,’

said Connie Hedegaard, EU Commissioner for Climate Action.

Who can participate?

Any project that is helping to lower or avoid CO2 emissions and improve people’s quality of life can be submitted – with emphasis on the most original and pioneering low-carbon initiatives. Entries are welcome from individuals, entrepreneurs, businesses, public and private organisations.  

What are the project criteria?

What matters is that the project contributes to avoiding, reducing or dealing with carbon emissions – on a technical or behavioural level. Projects should illustrate good practice and provide a role model for other people or organisations.

Project submissions are accepted in one of the following five categories:

  • Building & living
  • Shopping & eating
  • Re-use & recycling
  • Travel & transport
  • Innovative production
