The Biosphere Challenge encourages anyone with an interest in the biosphere to undertake simple actions which will help contribute towards the protection of our biosphere by helping us to live a little more sustainably.
Each week you will join other people all across the Biospheres in taking action to protect and connect with the land and sea that we share with other species.
These fun weekly tasks are suitable for all ages and we encourage you to share your achievements with your local community and our Natural Habitat Facebook Page (see below).
A series of videos are available on YouTube to help inform you further and maybe give you a little encouragement as we strive towards a brighter future for Ireland's environment!
The first challenge asks participants to do nothing! Well not exactly. What we’d like you to do is take time to enjoy nature. Spend at least 1 hour relaxing in the garden or a wild space and observe nature doing its thing. Hopefully by doing this activity you’ll find yourself relaxing and appreciating the wonder and beauty of nature.
Check out the rest of the challenges below and share your results on our FaceBook page.
Our vision is a network of thriving ecosystems and sustainable communities all across the Biospheres, where humans remember that we are part of nature and live harmoniously with other species. Each challenge is designed to help us be better neighbours to our local biodiversity. Flourishing ecosystems will, in turn, reward us by reducing climate change, feeding us, benefiting our mental and physical health and more!
We encourage families, friends, communities and businesses to work together (in line with Covid-19 restrictions) to rethink our role in the ecosystem and take action. Each of the weekly challenges is a chance to try out a new Biosphere-friendly activity or idea, many of which we hope will become a regular part of your lives.
