Great Big Green Week 

18 - 26 September 2021

In September we are joining with other members of The Climate Coalition to organise the Great Big Green Week - a huge call for action on climate change. And we need you to help us make it the greatest, biggest, greenest week of action the UK has ever seen!

Ahead of the UK hosting the UN Climate Summit in November (COP26) we want to show decision makers that people from all walks of life are stepping up to take action on climate change - and want them to step up too.

The Great Big Green Week will take place from the 18th to 26th September, and we’re inviting communities like yours to host thousands of events and activities across the UK.

Whether it’s a concert or a community group stall, a park clean up or a group of you planting trees in your local area - these activities will celebrate what you are doing to make your local area a cleaner, greener place to live. This will be an opportunity to raise the profile of climate change and how it is impacting the people and places we love right here in the UK and across the world.

Together we will show our communities, local decision makers and the UK government that it’s time to step up.
