South Oxfordshire District Council (SODC) is backing a national campaign aimed at helping and encouraging residents, communities, and businesses to act to help tackle the climate crisis, and to protect and improve the environment.
Great Big Green Week, which runs from 18th to 26th September, will see events taking place across the country, ranging from art installations, concerts, and community stalls to climate cafes, and everything in between, to help raise awareness and support those looking to take their own climate action.
The week will be a great opportunity for communities to organise events to raise awareness and encourage people to take action ahead of COP26, the United Nations Climate Conference, starting next month.
Throughout Great Big Green Week, SODC will be running an awareness campaign on their social media channels to highlight advice, local support, and projects to help tackle the climate emergency. The council is also encouraging local communities to stage their own events during the week and hope that this will lead to continuing, long-lasting and influential climate action across the districts.
