Environmental challenge accepted - competition

The competition is closed. Congratulations to the winners!

BALTA DABA and YEE invited all active young people to join the international competition “Environmental challenge accepted”. The competition was organised as part of the project with the same name and was closed on 20 August. Check the competition entries above!

About competition:

We wanted to collect and promote the examples of active youth participation - when young people want to solve local environmental problems. Young people are an important part of society and they have every right to care about their future, protect the environment and make this world better. So let’s celebrate it with this competition!

The competition was open for young people who organised a local environmental action in the last 5 years with the aim to solve an environmental problem. They were asked to share their example and had a chance to win prizes from Patagonia!

The competition was open to:

  • Young people under 30.
  • Young people who worked on actions as an informal group or are members of an environmental organisation.
  • One person should be selected as a contact person, but should represent the group or organisation under their agreement.
  • Residents of programme and partner countries of the Erasmus+ programme. 


The winners of the competition will receive prizes from Patagonia.

  • 1 place winner - voucher for any Patagonia product for 500 EUR
  • 2 place winner - voucher for any Patagonia product for 200 EUR
  • Public voting winner - voucher for any Patagonia product for 100 EUR
