Bangor #GreatBigGreenWeek 2021

21 September, 2021

In commemoration of the Great Big Green Week 2021, the North Wales Africa Society in partnership with Climate Cymru North Wales Police, North Wales Wildlife Nature Trust with funding from The Climate Coalition, hosts three community engagement events in Bangor Gwynedd. The event is one of 4,500 events across the UK. This is the first time the Great Big Green Week is celebrated in Bangor, and the theme is “Ewch yn wyrdd” or “Go Green” to convey a strong message. The launch of the week’s events promises to be a rallying point for politicians, local NGOs, activists as well as school pupils.

The Great Big Green Week “celebrates how communities across the UK are taking action to tackle climate change and protect green spaces. The events also raise awareness and encourage others to get involved as well.” The North Wales Africa Society leads the celebration in Bangor with three events spread through the week 18th to 26th September 2021. The Launch of the Bangor GBGW on 18th of September with guest speaker, Siân Gwenllian MS, a Senedd Constituency Member of the Plaid Cymru, Arfon. She spoke on the role of community members in climate change mitigation and good will messages were shared by the North Wales Police, Extinction Rebellion, Bangor Arts Association, Bangor University students and High school and primary school pupils. The Climate awareness day is on 21st of September. These events are being held at the Bangor African and Caribbean Centre in Bangor. We expect the green tour of Climate Cymru to be part of the Climate Awareness event with one of the highlights being a walk from the Bangor African and Caribbean Centre, to the town clock to raise awareness on climate action amongst residents of Bangor and beyond. A beach clean is scheduled for the 25th  September at the Rhosneigr beach. This event fits nicely into the Great British Beach Clean. The North Wales African Society demonstrates commitment to climate change and it’s mitigation by sensitizing members of the community on the climate emergency and the need to be involved in taking climate action NOW and FOREVER!

During the events participants and guests will be encouraged to add their voices via on-the-spot sign on to Climate Cymru’s campaigns which aims to raise 50,000 voices towards November 2021 COP26 which will be held in Glasgow, Scotland.

The new Bangor African and Caribbean Centre opened on 25 May on 345 High Street, Bangor.
