Climate Week, Britain’s Biggest Climate Change Campaign runs from 4 to 10 March 2013.

The supercharged national campaign is organised to inspire a new wave of action on climate change.

It culminates with thousands of events and activities taking place throughout the week of 4 to 10 March 2013, planned by organisations from every part of society.

Showcasing real, practical ways to combat climate change, the campaign aims to renew our ambition to create a more sustainable, low-carbon future.

Climate Week is backed by every part of society – from Prime Minister David Cameron to Paul McCartney, Manchester United to the Met Office, the TUC to the CBI, Girlguiding UK to the National Association of Head Teachers.

During Climate Week in 2012 over 3,000 events were attended by half a million people across the UK.

The prestigious Climate Week Awards recognise the most inspirational and impressive actions taking place in every sector of society.

The judging panel contains figures such as the advisor to the Prince of Wales’ Sustainability Unit, Tony Juniper, the former President of Ireland, Mary Robinson, and the Bishop of London.

The deadline for entries is the 25 January 2013 so think about who you might want to nominate and let us know.

In 2013 there will be a new feature to the campaign, the Climate Week Swap.

Swapping clothes, books toys and DVDs saves previous resources, reduces waste and carbon emissions and is completely free to run.

Hosting a Swap can be done by anyone in any setting – whether at work, at home, or in the community – and those who register can win a signed celebrity item.

Registrations are open for the Climate Week Challenge, Britain’s biggest ever environmental competition.

Over 130,000 people participated in 2012 in a challenge to come up with an idea to green a local space and make it more environmentally friendly. The winners went on to take part in workshops organized by industry and business leaders.

You can get involved now by starting to plan an event for Climate Week.

This provides a unique opportunity to profile your own initiatives and innovations to staff, students and the community, members and the media. You can also spread the word in advance, so that others find out about Climate Week in time to plan their own activities.

Go to the Climate Week website to find out more about Climate Week, or to register your event, or email [email protected] or telephone 020 3397 2601.
