Big Green Week 2018 is taking place in Bristol from 21st-25th May, inspiring people to make the sorts of changes which can have a positive effect on our future.
Running in tandem with EU Green Week, the next few days will celebrate the work of people, businesses and organisations who are taking steps to reduce their impact on the environment.
This year’s Big Green Week will be looking forward four generations from now and encouraging everyone to take steps to play their part in a more sustainable future.
Businesses, organisations and individuals in Bristol are being encouraged to take such as going vegan for the week, swapping the car or bus for cycling or walking, reducing the amount of energy they consume (or switching to a more sustainable energy provider) and spending money on local independent establishments or shops.
Finally, the call has been made to get out and enjoy the many green spaces and nature hotspots in the city or within a short distance.
Big Green Week 2018 is the 8th time the event has run. The festival aims to encourage people to think about their impact on the environment and offer an opportunity to change behaviour. Organisers also want to give people the knowledge and skills to change their habits, and also celebrate those who are blazing a trail for everyone else to follow.
For more information about what’s going on and how you can get involved, see the official Big Green Week 2018 website.
