The Climate Coalition’s Great Big Green Week is taking place between 8th and 16th June and will see thousands of people across the UK organising local festivals and events. Now in its fourth year, the campaign events will draw attention to climate change and destruction of the natural world, while also making a connection with these issues in communities like Norwich.

The Great Big Green Week will show that people and communities across the UK are making swaps every day to help create a better world, for us now and for the next generation.
