What is Great Big Green Week?
The Great Big Green Week is the UK’s biggest call for action on climate change, and will take place this year between 10th and 18th June 2023.
Together, we will show decision makers that people from all walks of life are stepping up to take action on climate change – and we need them to step up too.
Last year, over a quarter of a million people got involved in Great Big Green Week, by showing up for the planet in their community and online. This year, we want to make it even greater, bigger and greener!
There’ll be thousands of local events, festivals, workshops, discussions, supper clubs and celebrations. People nationwide will be showing just how much they care about climate and nature and encouraging others to get involved and take action, from school children to local MPs.
2022’s Great Big Green Week was a great success!
Over 268,000 took part!
GBGW succeeded in engaging & inspiring people:
- 43% of participants had not previously attended a climate event.
- 24% of participants said they were, “not the type of person who normally takes climate action”.
- 84% learnt new things they can do to protect nature and act on climate change.
- More than 40 million people were reached on social media
