North Somerset Big Green Week

The Great Big Green Week is a national initiative which is run every year by the Climate Coalition.

This year's Great Big Green Week runs from Saturday 24 September to Sunday 2 October, and will be the UK’s biggest ever celebration of community action to tackle climate change and protect our planet.

Here in North Somerset, there's a huge range of exciting events planned, including green markets, themed activities for children at libraries, plus workshops and exhibitions at venues across the area.
