What is the "Sustainability GooseChase?"

Join the chase! The first ever campus-wide sustainability scavenger hunt is coming to Cornell University for the first half of the fall semester, August 23 to October 12. Cornell students, faculty, and staff can compete for over $600 in prizes!

The scavenger hunt aims to nudge sustainable behavior change and highlight the many amzing resources that exist to progress sustainability on campus. Missions will be added daily for the first couple weeks and bi-weekly thereafter.

How to participate:

Any Cornellian can participate, but the GooseChase is especially useful for incoming students, giving them a comprehensive look at the sustainability resources & culture at Cornell.

1. Download the GooseChase App for free on any mobile device.

2. Use code YL8643 to join the Cornell mission - or search for "Sustainability GooseChase" 

3. Complete missions throughout the competition period, 8/23-10/12. New missions will be added daily for the first couple weeks and bi-weekly thereafter. You will need to use the app regularly to complete new missions. The more missions you complete, the higher the chance of winning a prize!

Stay up to date during the competition by following Sustainable Cornell on social media.

Collect the most points to win a grand prize worth $300. All participants earning over 10,000 points will also be entered for a chance to win one of three prizes valued at $100! Smaller prizes also awarded throughout the competition.
