Ding Dong
Ready for the Green Challenge!

There is no planet B. The European Union aims to make Europe the world's first climate-neutral continent by 2050. This can only be achieved through a collective commitment to sustainability, a circular economy, biodiversity and a just energy transition…without leaving anyone behind.

Get ready for the Ding Dong Challenge! We’ve teamed up with 15 local influencers, who will embark on green journeys across Belgium, Germany, Greece, Lithuania and Portugal to explore over 70 inspiring green European initiatives.

True to the name, the Ding Dong Challenge will bring green right to your doorstep! Every day, the influencers will arrive at a new location and ‘ring a doorbell’. They’ll meet the inspiring people, projects and communities taking concrete, systematic action to fight climate change and other environmental challenges in regions all over Europe. They will see first-hand that Europe is stronger when united in pursuit of a greener, better future.

Who is behind the Ding Dong Challenge?

The Ding Dong Challenge is an initiative of the EU’s Regional and Urban Policy department of the European Commission. EU Regional Policy targets all regions and cities in the European Union to boost their economic growth and improve people’s quality of life. It is an expression of solidarity, focusing support on the less developed regions.

Through its Regional Policy EU supports thousands of projects across the continent that make the change towards climate neutrality possible.
