The Problem

Lack of awareness of environmental issues and small changes that can be made at home.

Our Plan

We are hosting a community wide GooseChase (TM) photo scavenger hunt filled with nature and environmental themed challenges. By completing the challenges, participants will learn small steps they can take to lessen their environmental impact, as well as find out about resources available in Greensboro, North Carolina.

The Benefit

  • term icon

Here is how the project went:

The project went well. We didn't have as much engagement as we would have liked, but those who engaged provided very positive feedback and asked to do it again for Earth Day next year.

Through this project I/we learned:

Through this project, we learned that it is hard to build engagement just through virtual means. The people who were most engaged were the people who received the most one on one hype from organizers.

What I/we might change:

If we did this project again, we would hold an in-person workshop after Sunday service to walk community participants through the process of downloading the app and completing their first challenge.

My/our favorite part of this project was:

Our favorite part of the project was the pictures that we received through the game! We will use these to create a collage board for when we return to in-person meetings.

Some tips, tricks or fun facts about the project:

The GooseChase app is a lot of fun to use for engagement or learning opportunities.
