The Great Big Green Week is the UK’s biggest ever celebration of community action to tackle climate change and protect nature.
Between 24 September and 2 October this year, Great Big Green Week will unleash a wave of support for action to protect the planet. Tens of thousands of people in every corner of the country will celebrate the heartfelt, brave, everyday actions being taken to stand up for nature and fight climate change.

The first Great Big Green Week took place between 18 – 26 September 2021, and was the largest event for climate and nature ever seen in the UK. Over 5000 events celebrated how communities are taking action to tackle climate change and protect green spaces, and encouraged others to get involved too.
In Scotland, the Climate Fringe Week, took place hosted by our sister organisation Stop Climate Chaos Scotland. Together we called on politicians to raise their ambition and champion action on climate change.
National organisations, institutions, businesses and media outlets joined in, getting more people involved up and down the country, and putting pressure on the UK Government to up its game on climate change.
