Practice Greenhealth partners Cleveland Clinic, Mayo Clinic, and PeaceHealth have joined for a second year to offer an exciting engagement initiative designed specifically for health care caregivers.  

What is the one healthcare ecochallenge?

From April 1-30, you and other members of your organization’s team will use the online platform on the ecochallenge site to select activities to do at work, at home, and in your community to help develop healthy and sustainable habits.

Choose from a wide range of daily and one-time actions crafted with health care employees in mind. As you complete actions each day, you’ll see the scores of your individual achievements along with your organization’s impacts add up in real-time.

Watch your team’s ranking as you compete for bragging rights against other health care organizations around the world. It’s a friendly “competition” where we all win as we work to be better environmental stewards.

“It was inspiring to watch our Cleveland Clinic teams complete more than 15,000 actions to improve individual, community, and environmental health during the 2023 inaugural One Healthcare Ecochallenge. We received overwhelmingly positive feedback from participants, including that the challenge reinforced existing positive habits, provided motivation toward healthier practices, enhanced knowledge, and facilitated meaningful connections with colleagues. We are really excited to participate again this year and make an even bigger impact.” – Emily Katzin, One Healthcare Ecochallenge Organizing Team, Project Manager III, Sustainability Department, Cleveland Clinic
