Get involved

We’d love everyone who cares about tackling climate change to be part of the Great Big Green Week.

There is a huge range of ways for you to get involved and show up for your world. You can join the event in any way that celebrates the brilliant and unique work that you are doing in your community.

Show up at home

Create a great big green window display during September to show your neighbours that you are taking part.

Show up with family and friends

Have a climate chat. Talking about the impacts of climate change, and what we can do about it is one of the best ways you can begin to take action. Whether this is having a chat about over coffee or hosting a screening and discussion of your favourite environmental film, there are lots of ways to start those conversations. It might sound daunting at first, but we’ve got a few suggestions to make it easier.

Show up with your community

Invite your community to come together and celebrate your local area. Here are some ideas to get you started:

Community Clean Up: Organise a litter pick with neighbours, young and old, ending with a drink and snack on a local green or in your nearest square.

Get planting: Invite others to have a lasting impact on an outdoor space near you to literally sow the seeds for a cleaner, greener community. Just make sure you have permission from the landowner first!

Green Get together: Do you have a local green space; a coastal path; or even lucky enough to be near a nature reserve? Come together for a nature walk, a seaside picnic, or forest bathing! With the past year being as challenging as it has, we could all benefit from relaxing in a green space together.

Organise your own green week

Help us make history by hosting a Green Week in your local area.

This is a great opportunity to make the most of this crucial year. You could build lasting local connections, get more people active in your community and really get the attention of local decisions by hosting your own local Green Week. It could be anything from a few to a few hundred local events. And you won’t have to do it alone, we have resources to help you, and you can connect with other organisers too.

Even if organising a Green Week isn’t for you, there are still many ways to show up for your world:

Show up with others across the UK

You can send a message from your community and join others across the country in calling for ambition to tackle climate change, and produce a work of art at the same time. Invite local groups, businesses, schools and individuals to contribute. It’s a chance for everyone to have their say about the actions they want to see politicians and decision makers taking to tackle climate change.

Collect messages, photos, poems and artwork and create a beautiful display in the heart of your community.

Share your community’s message by inviting local politicians and media to see your artwork, and by sharing images on social media

Take your artwork to world leaders by displaying it during the Climate Summit in November, or bring it with you if you are travelling to Glasgow
