Residents are encouraged to find out how Warwickshire County Council is facing the challenges of climate change as part of Great Big Green Week 2022.

Great Big Green Week runs from Saturday 24 September to Monday 2 October 2022 and is the UK’s biggest ever celebration of community action to tackle climate change and protect the natural world.

To mark Great Big Green Week, Warwickshire County Council will be sharing some of the things that it is doing to play its part in addressing the climate change emergency and also the things that residents can do to take control of their own carbon footprints and environmental impacts.

Across the week (Monday 26 to Friday 30) Warwickshire County Council will cover the following key areas of activity:

  • Active Travel
  • Biodiversity
  • Waste
  • Energy
  • Transport

This content will be shared on the Warwickshire Website, the Warwickshire Climate Emergency website and across social media channels such as Twitter and Facebook.

Cllr Heather Timms, Warwickshire County Council’s portfolio holder for Environment, Heritage and Culture, said: “At Warwickshire County Council we are very committed that concerns of the climate and environment underpin all our decision making and proud to be able to showcase all the things that we are doing to mitigate and adapt to our planet’s changing climate as part of our activity for Great Big Green Week 2022.

“In addition to sharing our own climate change journey, we are also seeking to inspire our residents, communities and businesses to take their own steps as, together, we stive for a Warwickshire that is sustainable now and for future generations.”
