Guest Blog – Clare James, Climate Cymru – Great Big Green Week
Great Big Green Week is the UK’s largest event dedicated to climate action, taking place from 10th to 18th June 2023. Led by Climate Cymru it’s a week-long celebration of climate action, and a chance for individuals and organisations to come together to take action, combatting climate change.
As the impact of climate change becomes increasingly clear, it’s more important than ever for everyone to do their bit to reduce carbon emissions and protect the planet. By getting involved in Great Big Green Week, housing associations can take an important step towards building a greener, more sustainable future for Wales.
Last year, Sustainable Llanfairfechan organised a clothes swap at their eco fair, working with around 30 partners, including Cartrefi Conwy, including local environmental groups, volunteer led organisations, eco businesses and startups. MP Robin Millar visited to chat with stall holders.
