GREAT BIG GREEN WEEK

18 – 26 SEPTEMBER 2021

A NATIONAL WEEK OF 3000+ EVENTS CELEBRATING ACTION ON CLIMATE CHANGE

In September communities across the country will join together for the Great Big Green Week. It will be the biggest event for climate and nature ever in the UK, and everyone’s invited!

WHAT IS THE GREAT BIG GREEN WEEK?

The Great Big Green Week will take place 18 – 26 September 2021, and will be the largest event for climate and nature ever seen in the UK. Thousands of events will celebrate how communities are taking action to tackle climate change and protect green spaces, and encourage others to get involved too. If you’re in Scotland, you can get involved via the Climate Fringe Week, hosted by our sister organisation Stop Climate Chaos Scotland. Together we will call on politicians to raise their ambition and champion action on climate change.
