September 18 - September 26
18-26 September: the Climate Coalition’s ‘Great Big Green Week‘
Communities across the UK will join together for the ‘Great Big Green Week’. It aims to be the biggest event for climate and nature ever held in the UK, taking place just five weeks before COP26 is held in Glasgow. There are plans for a Great Big Green Week in Cheshire West and Chester, to raise the profile of groups taking action on climate change and to encourage more, from communities and politicians alike.
The ‘Great Big Green Week’ will link up with some existing events, such as the annual Chester Zoo Wildlife Connections on 18 &19 September. The Sustainable Chester Fair is being planned the following weekend in Grosvenor Park. Northwich will have art installations around the town, and more.
CWDF would like to hold an event of our own, and is open to suggestions from members – contact us by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. We might, for example, lobby at local branches of the major banks that are still heavily involved in financing fossil fuel projects and driving global warming, even though their stated investment policies have branded such activities as “unsustainable”.
If you’d like to be involved in our local ‘Great Big Green Week’ or want more information, please send an email to email@example.com.
