Myakka Supporting Climate Week
This year sees the biggest climate week yet, running from the 4th – 10th March 2013. The aim of Climate Week is to promote the way people can make small changes to live and work more sustainably.
There are lots of ways you can join in Climate Week to help spread the message of sustainability. Climate Week has a number of events running across the country such as ‘Swaps’ the ‘Climate Week Challenge’ and simply signing the ‘Climate Week Declaration’. To find a Climate Week event near you simply click here.
One of the biggest pushes this year is to get as many people as possible to sign the Climate Week Declaration. The aim of the declaration is to encourage the UK government to do more to prevent climate change. Currently the government is finalising a new law that decides the future of the UK’s energy supply. The aim is to get the government to include green targets into the Energy Bill to help give us greener, cleaner energy. To find out more and to read the complete declaration and to register your support, simply click here.
A fun and simple way to support climate week is to attend one of the many Swap events taking place across the country. By registering your event you could win the chance to win celebrity swap item for your swap event. You can swap anything that other people may like and that you no longer want, such as clothing, DVDs, books and furniture. Swaps are great fun and are great for the environment and means you can update your home and wardrobe - all for free! To find your nearest swap or to register your own simply click here.
There are lots ways to support Climate Week and we can all make small changes in our lives to help reduce our carbon footprint. Simply turning lights off when not needed, or turning down the thermostat by a degree or even switching to a green energy provider - can all help.
