Britain's Biggest Climate Change Campaign – 4 to 10 March 2013
Climate Week is a supercharged national campaign to inspire a new wave of action on climate change. It culminates in thousands of events and activities, planned by organisations from every sector of society. Showcasing real, practical ways to combat climate change, the campaign aims to renew our ambition to create a more sustainable, low-carbon future.
You can register now for the Climate Week Challenge, which is judged by celebrities and it is completely free to take part. The Climate Week Challenge in 2012 was Britain's biggest ever environmental competition, with over 130,000 people participating in the one day and one-hour versions. This is a fun and easy way for kids of all ages to get involved in the campaign. The challenge is kept a secret until the start of Climate Week, and everyone who takes part receives a certificate for their efforts. This year the winners from key stage 4 got to travel to London to make a working prototype of their invention!
There are a number of other elements to the campaign including our low-carbon food campaign. Bubble and Squeak for Climate Week is encouraging people to make the food that they eat a part of the solution to climate change. They can do this by joining in the call to action of eating a low carbon meal during Climate Week, either by using up leftovers to make Bubble and Squeak or by cooking food made from local ingredients or less meat and dairy.
