Climate Week 2014
03 Mar 2014
3-9 March 2014: A week to show how we can combat climate change.
Climate Week is Britain’s biggest climate change campaign, inspiring a new wave of action to create a sustainable future.
Culminating in a week of activities, it showcases practical solutions from every sector of society.
The first Climate Week in March 2011 saw half a million people attending 3,000 events in Britain’s biggest ever environmental occasion. Events were run by schools, businesses, charities, councils and many others.
You can find out more about Climate Week from their website: www.climateweek.com. They recommend a range of resources for teachers and they also encourage schools to register in advance for the Climate Week challenge.
The Climate Week Challenge is fun, free and easy to organise for your school to take part in Climate Week.
- It can be held on any day during Climate Week. The Challenge will be revealed to teachers a week beforehand.
- Teams of students are challenged to come up with creative solutions to climate change with entries judged by a celebrity judging panel.
- It is Britain's biggest ever environmental competition; over 130,000 young people take part.
- Winning ideas have included the Water Pebble –a gadget designed to save water by timing how long we spend in the shower– and the Eco-Fridge – a fridge powered by the energy from sound waves.
