The Great Big Green Week takes place between 18 and 26 September and will see communities across the country come together for the biggest UK event for climate and nature ever held in the UK.
Everyone’s invited to take part and show that we care and that we’re willing to do something to encourage action to combat climate change.
How can I take part in the Great Big Green Week?
It’s really easy to take part – schools could hold a special assembly based around climate change, groups can organise events such as a community litter pick. Individuals can take part by doing something as small as planting an area of their garden with wildflowers or autumn planting schemes.
You can find out more about how to organise an event and how to take part on the Great Big Green Week website.

Cllr David A Bithell, Lead Member for Environment and Transport, said: “Recent events across the world bring home the impact climate change is having on our lives. From raging wildfires to huge floods and their effect on populations and the environment can be devastating.
“Here in Wrexham we had floods earlier in the year and we’ve seen for ourselves the effect these had in Bangor on Dee, Holt and of course the damage caused to the B5605 at Newbridge which is proving inconvenient to local communities.
“Now is the time to take action and I’d encourage groups, organisations and individuals across Wrexham to take part in the week and either hold an event or take part in one that’s being organised in your area.”
