What is the Great Big Green Week?

Green grassRichard Pearce, Green Apostle, reports...


The Great Big Green Week will take place 18 – 26 September 2021, and will be the largest event for climate and nature ever seen in the UK. Thousands of events will celebrate how communities are taking action to tackle climate change and protect green spaces, and encourage others to get involved too. Together we will call on politicians to raise their ambition and champion action on climate change.

 

What events will there be?

 

Get involved by hosting an event at your church during the week. Your event can celebrate how your church community is stepping up to take action on climate change, and invite others in your local area to join in.

 

Events will range from art installations, to concerts to community stalls, to climate cafes, and everything in between – hosted by teachers, bus drivers, sport clubs, artists, community groups, places of worship, builders and anyone who cares about climate change.

 

Great Big Green Week community hubs will celebrate local activity, raise the profile of climate change and show why it is relevant to your community and local decision makers.

 

National organisations, institutions, businesses and media outlets will join in, getting more people involved up and down the country, and putting pressure on the UK Government to up its game on climate change.
