It’s now less than a month to go until the Great Big Green Week. It will be an exciting convergence of climate action all across the United Kingdom to show politicians that the public wants to see urgent and ambitious action taken to tackle climate change.
Eco Communities are co-ordinating activities within Cheshire West and speaking to lots of groups to pull together what everyone is doing and represent a unified front. If you want to put on your own activity feel free to email firstname.lastname@example.org so we can add you into the programme, or alternatively join us at our event on the 25th September.

We start the weekend of the 18th September by attending Chester Zoo’s Wildlife Connections Festival, taking place across two days.
The 18th September will also see exciting events going on across Cheshire from some of our wonderful community; 10xGreener CH1, Blacon Action Team, Incredible Edible Handbridge, and Climate Action Chester and District.
Transition Chester have also organised 3 Sustainable Walks over the week.
Then, to end the week, thanks to support from Cheshire West Voluntary Action (CWVA), Cheshire West and Chester Council, and other amazing partners, we will be hosting the first of what we hope will become an annual event.
The Great Big Green Week Festival at Grosvenor Park in Chester takes place on Saturday 25 September – 11am until 4pm. We will have a range of stalls selling goods, refreshments, community organisation stalls, talks. and entertainment. All to raise awareness for Climate Change, Sustainability, and reducing our Carbon Footprint and effect on the planet.
The Festival is being supported financially by The Climate Coalition, Cheshire West Voluntary Action, Vivocare and Chester West and Chester Council.
We are not charging attendees or for stalls. We will provide businesses with details and they may wish to make a donation after the event we can use to support future years activities.
You can find all the events listed on our Might Network platform – Join here.
