Start planning for Climate Week - eight weeks to go

It's time to start planning for Climate Week - eight weeks from now on 3-9 March 2014. It is Britain's largest climate change campaign, with half a million people attending over 3,000 events each year.
 
Climate Week is about how people can live and work more sustainably, and you can run any kind of event or activity you wish. Here are some ideas:
 
Enter the Climate Week Challenge, a competition for small teams in schools and workplaces. It needs no preparation, is free and helps develop innovation and teamwork. There are one-hour and one-day versions - register here.
 
Enter the Climate Week Awards for professional achievement that is helping to create a more sustainable society - click here to find out more.

Run a Climate Week Swap event at which people can exchange clothes, books or children's toys they don't want any more - find out more here.

We are very pleased to announce that the sponsoring partners for Climate Week 2014 are Anglian Water, Severn Trent Water, Thames Water and Wessex Water - find out about their work on sustainability here. Below are the ways in which they describe some of their own activities:
 
Anglian Water - innovating and collaborating to transform how we all value water.
Severn Trent Water - doing the right thing for the long term.
Thames Water - generating almost enough renewable energy to power Oxford!
Wessex Water - producing electricity from sewage sludge, and now food waste.
 
Please remember to register your events and activities with Climate Week - they will then be listed as an official part of Climate Week, encouraging others to take part and so growing the movement for environmental change.
