Fossil Fuel Age Challenge Logo


EcoActions are actions that you personally take to help end the Fossil Fuel Age and dawn the EcoEnlightened Age. They can range from large community based initiatives such starting a farmers market, to small personal actions such as helping your neighbor start composting.

Critically important EcoActions focus on building awareness and educating others – especially those in leadership positions. Also critical is making EcoEnlightened thinking a daily habit for yourself and a mainstream mindset throughout the world.

Posting your EcoAction is easy. First get inspired by reading what others have done. Then, get creative and think of an EcoAction that will help fight climate change, protect the environment, and perhaps even educate others. Finally take action!…and plenty of pictures. Then, post your EcoAction by clicking here!
