Climate Week

Climate Week

Start Date:21 Mar 11 End Date:27 Mar 11

A new national occasion
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 will shine 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.

Support from every part of society
Thousands of businesses, charities, schools, councils and others will run events during Climate Week on 21–27 March 2011. They will show what can be achieved, share ideas and encourage 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 National Trust, Girlguiding UK to the CBI, the Big Lottery Fund to the National Association of Head Teachers.

Help inspire millions to act
You can help create a massive movement for change by making Climate Week happen where you are. Ask an organisation or group you know – such as your workplace or local school – to run an event.

The event could be a talk, workshop, training session, open day, exhibition, party or any other kind of activity. People can also take part in Britain's biggest live environmental competition – the Climate Week Challenge – and enter the prestigious Climate Week Awards.

Run an event
Climate Week gives everyone the chance to focus on ways of helping to combat climate change and to inspire many more across society to raise their game.

Highlight what can be done
You can showcase things that your organisation has done, or highlight things that others have achieved, or simply start a discussion about what might be possible.

Run an event that's right for you
Run an event or activity that's relevant to your organisation, group or community and engages the people that matter to you, whether they're stakeholders or staff, customers or community, members or media. There are lots of real benefits.

• a school could run an assembly
• an employer could run staff training workshops
• a thinktank could run a policy debate
• a restaurant could have a special eco-menu
• a business could profile new products or services
• a community group could hold an environmental film night or a low-carbon coffee morning

Any organisation can use the occasion to highlight new ways of doing things, motivate staff or renew ambitions to cut carbon emissions. Please let us know what you're planning to do for Climate Week – contact us for details of how to register your event.
