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 is a supercharged national occasion that offers an annual renewal of our ambition and confidence to combat climate change. It is for everyone wanting to do their bit to protect our planet and create a secure future.
Climate Week shines a spotlight on the many positive steps already being taken in workplaces and communities across Britain. The power of these real, practical examples – the small improvements and the big innovations – will then inspire millions more people.
Thousands of businesses, charities, schools, councils and others ran events during Climate Week on 12-18 March 2012. They showed what can be achieved, shared ideas and encouraged thousands more to act during the rest of the year.
Climate Week has support from every part of society – from the Prime Minister to Paul McCartney, the NHS to the Met Office, Girlguiding UK to the CBI, the Big Lottery Fund to the National Association of Head Teachers.
Events include talks, workshops, training sessions, open days, exhibitions, and other activities. People are also taking part in Britain’s biggest live environmental competition – the Climate Week Challenge and the prestigious Climate Week Awards.
