Take the Great Big Green challenge – every week

Following the Big Green Week in September supported by the Climate Coalition people from right across the UK came together to take action big and small on climate change. We put together some ideas covering nine different themes and will keep these on our website, adding to them as we find new ideas!

We would love your help to add to them. So take a look- decide where you can take your next step to a more sustainable lifestyle and make suggestions for others.
