In my final Blog of Climate Week, I thought I’d talk a bit about Climate Week.
Climate Week’s aim is to help inspire millions of people to combat climate change.
Climate Week’s website states its: “Britain’s biggest climate change campaign, inspiring a new wave of action to create a sustainable future. Culminating in a week of activities, it showcases practical solutions from every sector of society”.
There are thousands of events running around the country this week, so if you haven’t been to one yet, then check out their website for what’s on over the weekend.
If you’re in Brighton and Hove, there’s a Green Architecture Day, a SuperHomes Day and a couple of food events.
I believe many people care about the environment, communities and the legacy of what we leave behind. I believe many people do take positive action, from recycling, or taking the bus, to setting up sustainable businesses.
But there are many that don’t take action. Why? Lack of knowledge, lack of money, lack of time, ‘what difference will I make?’ feelings, lack of motivation. There are many reasons.
I believe if more people talk about what they do, then it will become the norm. My vision is that we no longer talk about Values Led/Sustainable/Ethical/Green/Environmental businesses and just talk about businesses, as all businesses will be Values Led/Sustainable/Ethical/Green/Environmental.
That is what Climate Week is about – talking – sharing knowledge, inspiring, and taking action.
I hope my series of blogs this week has helped inspire some action.
