Description

Climate Week is Britain’s biggest climate change campaign, inspiring a new wave of action to create a sustainable future. Culminating in a week of activities, it showcases practical solutions from every sector of society. Each year, half a million people attend 3,000 events in Britain’s biggest ever environmental occasion. Events are run by schools, businesses, charities, councils and many others.

Climate Week aims to help catalyse a real, long-term shift in the way society approaches climate change. It offers an annual opportunity to focus attention on the challenges and share ideas on how we can overcome them. This will result in many more people and organisations adopting the huge number of changes that can be made, in virtually every area of human activity, to move towards a low-carbon society.

In other words, the focus of Climate Week is on how we can combat climate change. It is a campaign to offer powerful opportunities for change to the many people who want to do their bit.

Climate Week’s main focus is on people bringing about change through the organisations and networks that they are involved with – such as their workplaces, schools and community groups. This is because they can then have a much greater impact than would be possible solely through changes to their own personal lifestyles.
