Great Big Green Week

Cheshire West

Eco Communities oversaw activities in the region for Great Big Green Week, promoted by The Climate Coalition including its Festival in Grosvenor Park in 2021 and beyond.

Eco Communities are pleased be co-ordinating a fantastic week of activities as part of The Climate Coalitions Great Big Green Week again this year. Great Big Green Week 2022 is from the 24 September – 2 October 2022. Help us to make is the greatest, biggest, greenest week Cheshire West has ever seen by organising an event in your community.

We already have planning underway for another Great Big Green Week Festival in Grosvenor Park, Chester on the 24th September. With more events to add to the kist soon.

What is Great Big Green Week?

The idea was created by The Climate Coalition. The Climate Coalition is a group of over 100 organisations at 22 million strong. Eco Communities are a member of what is the UK’s largest group of people dedicated to action against climate change. Along with key organisations like RSPB, WWF, Fairtrade Foundation, National Trust, The Women’s Institute and more.

Unfortunately climate change isn’t something we can fix over a week and so our aim is to use this platform to keep free flowing information on all activities within the region.
