Activities on Environmental Awareness

11 Environmental Games For Adults To Engage in Sustainability

Let’s face it, we’re all a little competitive. 

At Random Acts of Green, we know that friendly competition is a great way to help combat feelings of hopelessness and isolation in the face of eco-anxiety. 

Bringing people together to turn awareness into action and action into impact is what we’ve been doing for the last 10 years. 


Studies have shown that gamification is an effective way to engage groups in action.  

Here we’ve put together a list of 10 Environmental Games To Engage A Group in Sustainability to help activate action for the planet.

SDG Sustainability Challenge

A climate-safe future isn’t just some castle in the sky. If we can dream it, we can build it, especially if we work together.  After all, many hands make light work. 

Using the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals as our guide, we’ve put together a blueprint to help set a solid foundation for a sustainable future. 

These pillars include actions you can take as an individual to shrink your footprint, group activities to build a resilient community and actions with the bigger picture in mind. 


This challenge encourages people worldwide to try a vegan diet for the month of January. 

The goal is to support people and businesses alike to move to a plant-based diet as a way of protecting the environment, preventing animal suffering, and improving the health of millions of people.

Our current major food production systems are not sustainable as they decimate forests, pollute rivers and oceans, exacerbate climate change and drive wild animal populations to extinction.

This challenge is especially important because eating a vegan diet has been dubbed as the “single biggest way” to reduce your environmental impact on the earth. 



No Mow May

🤦‍♀️ Are you de-mow-tivated to care for your lawn?

🌼 Why GRASS-p for motivation when you can LEAF it or later plant a garden instead.

No Mow May’ invites you to relax and let the grass grow a little while longer. It may be tempting while at home to fire up the lawnmower to tidy up your green space but we are asking you to consider hitting the brakes on that idea.  

Let the first flowers of spring fully emerge to support the pollinators who are recently awakening from hibernation.

Secondhand September

The ‘Secondhand September‘ challenge encourages you to rethink buying new and try to find what you need pre-loved when possible. This resource you need may already exist and is awaiting someone like you to help keep it in use.

Participate in the circular economy and do your part to help transform waste into a resource!

Here are some examples:

  • Renting – borrow the items you need from a library, service or peer-to-peer network. 
  • Upcycle – transform a material you already have into the item you are looking for.
  • Swap – host or attend a clothing swap to help redistribute items locally.
  • Recycled Materials –  take a closer look at the materials used in manufacture of items you need and support makers that create using second hand materials. Not all items themselves can be bought second hand but perhaps those products can be consciously created using repurposed materials. 
  • Borrow – for items that you need for a limited time, ask people in your networks if they can lend you what you need.
  • Repair – try to mend what you have or have it altered or fixed by someone who can.
  • Consume less – simply buy only what you need and nothing more.
