You can connect with your local community and get the attention of local decision makers by hosting a Green Week or an event in your town. A local Green Week can be anything from a few to a few hundred local events. Our guide will have all the information you need to organise your own local Green Week or event.
A-Z of Event Ideas
What will make the Great Big Green Week so great is the range of events organised to celebrate the brilliant and unique work of communities, businesses and individuals across the country. If you need help getting started, this guide will have plenty of ideas to inspire you!
Host a film screening
Thinking about hosting a film screening during the Great Big Green Week? Why not put on a showing of The Ants and The Grasshoppers – a new film premiering on the 23rd September. The film is about Anita, a subsistence farmer from Malawi who travels to America to talk to people from all walks of life about the impacts of climate change she’s already experiencing and to challenge their assumptions. You can find a more detailed description here.
Dartmouth Films are making this film available to community groups and individuals who would like to do film screenings as part of Great Big Green Week, and are supporting organisers to set up these screenings in local, independent cinemas.
If you would like to host a screening of The Ants and The Grasshoppers, email email@example.com, providing details of the town the event will take place in and your closest independent cinema.
