Great Big Green Week 2022 will mobilise tens of thousands of people across the UK in an explosion of activity celebrating the heartfelt, brave, everyday actions being taken to stand up for nature and protect our climate. 

There’ll be a flagship national moment and thousands of local gatherings, festivals, workshops, discussions, supper clubs and celebrations. Public engagements that will all help to influence local MPs and ultimately drive political change.

A recent Green Alliance study found that: 

“politicians understand the need for action on climate change [but] feel under very little pressure to act. They report limited interest from their constituents, and indicate that they need to find ways to make climate action relevant to the daily lives and concerns of the electorate” Green Alliance study

What can we do?

Great Big Green Week generates a  mass, visible and mainstream public engagement moment demonstrating action on climate and nature.

It will communicate positive public support for action from audiences across the UK, highlighting the changes that individuals, communities, charities and businesses are already making, and enable public advocacy to their MP. 

Great Big Green Week’s events, political engagement, and communication campaigns will result in more political space and stronger will for ambitious action on climate and nature.

We all have hopes and dreams for ourselves and for the next generation 

For the next generation to have the future we want and they deserve, we have a duty to tackle the climate crisis and protect nature today.

This fierce hope is why people are stepping up to take part in Great Big Green Week all over the UK to show their support for a safer, greener future.

Now government needs to follow suit and deliver on their promises to protect us and the next generation.
