As the world population quickly grows (we'll hit seven billion any day now), so does our need for energy. How do we keep up with this growing demand in a responsible, equitable, and sustainable way? That is the question National Geographic is hoping to address with its Great Energy Challenge.
The Great Energy Challenge is program designed to help people understand the current energy situation and how they can be part of the solution.
Check out The Great Energy Challenge website to:
- Measure your current energy consumption using the Personal Energy Meter.
- Find volunteer opportunities and other ways to support energy projects and initiatives around the world.
- Follow the month-by-month energy “diet” to help your household reduce its carbon footprint.
The site also allows you to share your progress with others joining the challenge. You can share your Personal Energy Meter score and challenge your friends or follow the journey of nine households around the world as they embark on the energy diet.
The Great Energy Challenge is a fun and interactive way we can join together to make a positive impact on the current energy crisis.
