From Saturday 10th to Sun 18th June 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 the Climate Coalition. They have a great website with resources you can use and lists of so we’ll be part of a huge national festival and events will be taking place around Britain

COULD YOU ORGANISE SOMETHING FOR THE WEEK?
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 an Eco Fair at St Alban’s School, Fairs in Emsworth, displays in the Meridian Shopping Centre, a schools art competition and some walks, talks, litter picks and cycle rides, but there is plenty of scope for more.
You can see all the events for our Green Week last year here.
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?
