The overall purpose is to help you become aware of the actions you can take on a daily basis to improve the environment we all live in. While performing the Tasks, one by one, you will become more eco-friendly just like that. You can also “spread the word” and give the link to your friends and start together a bigger change.
No, you can choose where to start and you can work on the Tasks from several Missions at the same time.
No, you can choose them on an ad hoc basis but notice that some of them are interconnected or sometimes easier Tasks help you to prepare for the more difficult ones.
It is up to you, really. To get to the Special Mission, you need to perform all the Tasks in other Missions but you can stop or take a break at any time. You will be stopped from marking all task as done in one day - but who would like to cheat on himself or herself anyway?!
Just click on a link and with the right button on your mouse select “open in a new tab”. Remember that you can always use the “back button” to return to your task within the tab.
We tried to provide as much information, data and examples as possible in English, still we decided to leave some of the links leading to sources in other languages if the content was extremely valuable - please use a web translator to enjoy them, or search for alternative information in your language on the sustainable search platform ecosia (https://www.ecosia.org/.), for example.
This is a web app, so we won't send you push notifications, but we have a simple solution to your problem: set yourself reminders in your smartphone timer or calendar. That way you will be reminded and stay in the game.
You can recommend this action/task to someone else - your friend, relative or colleague and when you do it - mark the Task as done.

The GoBeEco webapp was created as part of the Erasmus project GoBeEco - Gamification of eco-friendly habits in adult education. The project team from Poland, Portugal and Germany developed the webapp together in 2022/2023. In addition to that, a handbook for educators was created in the course of the project, in which digital competences in the field of education can be developed further in order to motivate learners to live more sustainable.
