Residents in Three Rivers and Watford are taking part in a nationwide campaign this September to highlight the need for urgent action on climate and nature ahead of COP26, the United Nations Climate talks, later this year in Glasgow.
Taking place between September 18-26, the climate action campaign known as the Great Big Green Week will see thousands of people across the UK organising local festivals and events.
The campaign aims to draw attention to climate change, destruction of the natural world, while also making a connection with these issues in communities like Three Rivers and Watford, at the same time as showcasing actions to tackle climate change.
The Three Rivers and Watford week is being co-ordinated by the Watford and Three Rivers Friends of the Earth, with events from walks, to movies, to creative spaces across the area being hosted by organisations such as Watford Council, Three Rivers District Council, Veolia, Affinity, Watford and Three Rivers Friends of the Earth, Sustainable Three Rivers, Spokes, Random Café, Croxley Common Moor and many, many more.
For more information on these events, please visit www.greenwatford.uk/greenweek
And if you’d like to get involved, either in the planning or to contribute an event or item, please let them know via firstname.lastname@example.org
Anna Addison, from Watford and Three Rivers Friends of the Earth, said: “I want to see our community come together to make progress on tackling climate change because I care about my local area and can see the impact the changing climate is already having and think we need to do all we can to protect the planet for generations to come.”
