This posts marks the Microvist update that adds group challenges. As of right now you can start any of our challenges, invite friends and to do them together!
It’s been pretty easy for us to find people who care and are doing good things for the environment. These people are often pretty vocal and proud of their actions, as they should be. Our biggest challenge is finding the people who are just starting their sustainable journey.
To our current users, readers and friends. We ask you to create a group challenge and start inviting others. Ask your friends, family colleagues or neighbours. Some of these people will have yet to start or are starting their journey to a more sustainable life. Group challenges may be that fun attainable stepping stone in that journey they need.
How Group Challenges Work
When you start a Microvist challenge you’ll see it in “My Challenges”. From there view your challenge and start inviting others.
Discuss with the group your progress, tips, and thoughts. Get conversations going and help each other out along the way.
Each microvist challenge has some recommendations for when a challenge should be completed. But it’s up to you and the group to decide on the rules. Get competitive and see who can grow the most, save the most or hit complete challenge the most. You can complete challenges many times while it’s active.
When the challenge ends give each other a high five (If COVID-19 is still a thing while you read this do it virtually). Then look back and be proud of the change you’ve made. Even small changes are a step in the right direction.
As I said at the start of this post, this is a new feature. We also want to know your opinions.
Get in touch and tell us what you like about group challenges and what we should change or add. We want to continue building something special and your feedback goes a long way in ensuring we do that.
The future will hold more challenges that are great to do as groups. More features to help everyone make positive changes. And more fun and social ways to do all that.
