Tring’s Great Big Green Week will take place between 10 and 18 June. The Great Big Green Week encourages whole communities to come together to celebrate our environment and be ready and willing to take action to tackle climate change. The Great Big Green Week includes everything from cookery to craft, festivals to football matches, shop window displays to school assemblies. Events have been planned by people from our community: teachers, shop owners, sports clubs, artists, places of worship, community groups and more!
Tring has planned its own week of events and action as part of the UK’s national Great Big Green Week – the biggest ever celebration of community action to tackle climate change and protect nature. The first ever Great Big Green Week took place in September 2021 and saw over 5,000 events and actions across the UK. Since then, the movement has grown and every year, people come together to unleash a wave of support for action to protect the planet. The Great Big Green Week is a Climate Coalition initiative. The Climate Coalition is, as the name suggests, a coalition of influential charities including Friends of the Earth, The National Trust, Christian Aid, WWF-UK, RSPB and Oxfam.
The drive to promote The Great Big Green Week locally has been brought about by The Sustainable Tring Thing working in partnership with Tring Town Council. The Sustainable Tring Thing is a local grassroots movement supporting the development of projects, campaigns and initiatives to further the sustainable development and enhancement of the community of Tring and the surrounding area.
