Thousands of events and activities, highlighting the positive steps being taken to help combat climate change, are being planned by organisations from every sector for the UK's first Climate Week.
The Climate Week organizers say that the initiative is backed by every part of society - from the Prime Minister to Paul McCartney, the NHS to the National Trust, Girl guiding UK to the CBI, the Big Lottery Fund to the National Association of Head Teachers.
Climate Week is sponsored by a Headline Partner - Tesco - and four Supporting Partners - Aviva, EDF Energy, Kelloggs and RBS.
Organisations can get involved by starting to plan an event for Climate Week, entering the Climate Week Awards or registering to take part in the UK’s biggest ever live environmental competition, the Climate Week Challenge. They can also spread the word in advance, so that others find out about Climate Week in time to plan their own activities.
Individuals can help right now by asking the organisations they know - such as their workplace or local school - to plan an event or activity for Climate Week.
