Climate Week is a national campaign to inspire action on climate change. It culminates with thousands of events and activities taking place throughout the week of 4 to 10 March 2013, planned by organisations from every part of society. Showcasing real, practical ways to combat climate change, the campaign aims to renew our ambition to create a more sustainable, low-carbon future.
Shrinking the Footprint, the Church of England’s national environment campaign, is supporting Climate Week 2013, and are calling congregations to take part on Sunday 10th March as part of their weekly worship. Here is how you can get involved:
- Walk, bike, or car-share to worship – Encourage everyone to use alternative transport to get to your Sunday service.
- Climate Week Swap – Hold an exchange event where everyone brings items such as clothes, books or children’s toys that they no longer want to trade for others.
- Bubble & Squeak – Pass around a recipe from the Climate Week website for a low-carbon Sunday meal.
- Green Roundtable – Arrange a discussion for members to talk about ways to lower your church’s carbon footprint
