One week to show how we can combat climate change
21st to 27th March 2011
Climate Week is an exciting new national occasion taking place on 21-27 March 2011. It will showcase the many positive steps being taken to combat climate change, and inspire many more
Thousands of events and activities, highlighting the positive steps being taken to help combat climate change, are being planned by organisations from every part of society for the UK's first Climate Week.
The assumption behind Climate Week is that there is no universal solution for combating climate change – it requires a variety of solutions applied simultaneously.
The solutions involve changes in every area of our lives and work. Just a few examples are recycling, loft insulation, turning your thermostat down, electric cars, changes in consumption habits, better public transport, electricity production using renewable or low-carbon sources of energy, changes in the way that food is produced and distributed, sharing cars, teleconferencing, street lamps powered by solar panels… low-carbon solutions are being developed in every area of human activity.
Climate Week is sponsored by a Headline Partner - Tesco - and four Supporting Partners - Aviva, EDF Energy, Kelloggs and RBS - which all have a deep commitment to action on climate change.
Winners of the prestigious Climate Week Awards will be announced during Climate Week. Entries can be submitted right now in a range of categories. The Climate Week Challenge, also taking place during the week, will involve teams in schools and workplaces across the UK all doing the same task at the same time, in Britain's biggest ever live environmental competition.
