From Sat 24th September to Sun 2nd October, we’re hoping to see lots of events around the Borough, celebrating action on climate and sending a message to the politicians that we really care about the linked issues of cutting greenhouse gas emissions, protecting biodiversity and tackling waste and pollution.
Our Green Week is part of the country-wide Great Big Green Week organised by hte Climate Coalition. They have a great website with resources you can use and lists of ideas: https://greatbiggreenweek.com/ so we’ll be part of a huge national festival and events will be taking place around Britain.
With specific guides:

Out theme for 2022 is Your Green Footprint. We’d like to see lots of events and displays to show people what we can do about saving energy, protecting our wildlife and natural spaces, cutting our waste? Our food, travel and buying choices all make a difference. We all have a green footprint.
We have a number of events planned already including displays in the Meridian Shopping Centre, events at the Spring Arts Centre, A Sustainable Fashion Show at HSDC, a green coffee morning, a schools art competition and some walks, talks, litter picks and cycle rides, but there is plenty of scope for more.
Could your group plan an open day, a talk, a practical demonstration, a walk or a cycle ride? Maybe a working group to clear a site, tree planting or an event involving children? Could you build an environmental theme into something you are doing already – even a coffee morning or religious service?
We’ve put a page together with ideas for schools including some great suggestions from Havant schools. You can see it here
This is a video from last year to give you ideas.
Havant Borough Big Green Week will be an opportunity for us to celebrate together and look ahead to how we can create a cleaner, greener, healthier world. There’s lots more information, ideas and resources you can use on https://greatbiggreenweek.com/
