the Great Big Green Week

Stand up for our Climate!

This year the UK is set to hold the 26th “Conference of Parties” (or COP) which brings all nations to Glasgow to work out how we hold the temperature down to sub-catastrophic levels.  In preparation for this, the Great Big Green Week (September 18th-26th) is being held in many communities across the UK, including Bridport.  West Dorset Friends of the Earth is organising local groups to hold events throughout the week.

We will be holding an Opening Gathering on the beginning Saturday on the Bridport Millennium Green with stalls, speeches, and a proclamation by the mayor. There will be a chance to picnic afterwards, visit stalls and listen to music.

During the week other groups will be holding their own green events: Transition Town Bridport is cohosting a Greener Homes visit, a parent-child tree walk is planned, a talk on local adaption plus many proposals still being hatched.

Please join us! Hold your own event no matter how small. Contact Scott for further information or to share ideas.
