Green GB Week – Day 5 (19 October 2018)


Today (19 October 2018) is Day 5 & the final day of the first Green GB Week marking the 10th anniversary of the Climate Change Act 2008.

Green GB Week is an opportunity to bring the whole country together to celebrate UK leadership and look forward to the next ten years, where we can seize the opportunities of clean growth.

It has been conceived as a series of week-long events and activity bringing together businesses, schools, colleges, universities, community groups, and charities to explore how clean growth will change our futures and others can contribute to action on climate change.

The intention is for Green GB Week to promote the scale of the opportunities to reduce emissions, grow the low carbon economy and create a better environment.

Day 5 (19 October 2018) looks at the actions that communities can take to deal with and minimise climate change.

Each of us can make a change and a real difference BUT together we can make more significant contributions to climate change. We need to connect within our communities and beyond to ensure that the message of clean growth and climate change are understood and action is taken to drive towards a low carbon future.

Here are two opportunities for UK communities to come together to connect with clean growth and climate action:

  1. Groups, such as the Community Energy Hub, provide resources promoting communities take control of their energy and giving them an opportunity to source sustainable energy and save costs.
  2. Use tools, such as WWT Environmental Footprint Calculator, to identify opportunities to reduce energy usage and other environmental impacts.

Take time to visit the Green GB Week website & consider how you can contribute the week’s activities and beyond.


  1. Review the content of the Green GB website in the context of the opportunities to connect within your community on clean growth and climate change.
  2. Consider any activities, such as social media, that can spread the message of a celebration of community action on clean growth and climate change.
  3. Consider how you can develop a Clean Growth and Low Carbon community in the area that you live and work in & what will be your next steps – Leave a comment in this post.
