Carroll Park Climate Challenge
The Carroll Park and Friends Climate Challenge is a neighborhood effort – started by your teenage neighbors - to minimize our personal impact on the environment, reduce our neighborhood carbon footprint, and engage in larger environmental and social justice issues.

Jackie is hosting Drastic Plastic August to draw our attention to the worldwide plastic menace and help us curb our own plastic appetite. There are no points attached to these, because each challenge will be judged separately

How Does The Climate Challenge Work?
Climate Challenges will be issued by your neighbors (not just teens – this is inter-generational) on a rotating basis, starting with challenges related to single-use plastics. Challenges will be issued via:
Travelling Surfboards: You will first notice the challenge on a surfboard in your neighbor’s front yard. The surfboards will move from house to house, depending on who is putting up the challenge.
Our Website, e-Newsletter or Instagram page. You can learn more about the challenges on the website, e-newsletter and instagram page. You will also find suggestions for how to fulfill each challenge. When the challenge has concluded, you can view our collective impact, and hear about overachievers.
