Register your Climate Week events and activites

There are just seven weeks until Climate Week (12-18 March), when thousands of organisations across Britain promote positive steps to help combat climate change. Last year there were over 3,000 events attended by half a million people.

This year is expected to be even bigger – will your organisation be part of Britain’s biggest climate change campaign? Whatever you are planning, please tell us what you are doing by registering your activity on the Climate Week website.This takes just two minutes.

If you register your activity on our online map:

  • Your activity will inspire others to run their own Climate Week activities – catalysing an even broader social movement for change.
  • Your activity will encourage others to act during the rest of the year – creating a shared vision of a low carbon Britain.
  • Your activity will be seen by journalists, professionals in your sector, and the public – helping you gain profile and recognition.

Your activity could be big or small, open to everyone or just for your organisation, a physical event or something online. Climate Week is all about showcasing real, practical actions and starting discussions about what might be possible. We can only do this by publicising everyone’s events and activities. Please tell us what you are planning!
