Climate Week

Climate Week (21 - 27 March 2011) offers an opportunity for everyone to do their bit to protect our planet and create a secure future. The event highlights the positive steps already being taken in workplaces and communities across the UK, with the hope of inspiring more people to get involved. Thousands of businesses, charities, schools, councils and others will run events during Climate Week on 21-27 March 2011.

I share Suitably Despairing's cynicism about the sponsors of Climate Week. However, it does offer a great opportunity to highlight the issues and galvanise people into action. If you're in the UK, you can find an event close to you or run your own event! There's even an Ideas Bank too!

To mark Climate Week the Carbon Trust have created an infographic that explains why business holds the key to meeting UK carbon reduction targets. If you click yes on this site, they’ll use your support to get more businesses to prove carbon reduction.

Climate Week--a great idea. We had a Ground Water Festival here in the county a few years ago. Climate Week would be a good idea.

I wish a few Canadian politicians understood the importance of this idea.
