Will you join our partnership of local organisations in celebrating the Stockton-On-Tees Great Big Green Week (SOTGBGW) 18-26 September 2021? This exciting event, made up of numerous community activities over the 9 day period, is an opportunity for us to join together to take action to tackle climate change, protect our green spaces and get others involved too! The Climate Coalition’s national initiative Great Big Green Week will be the biggest event for climate and nature ever in the UK, and everyone’s invited! https://greatbiggreenweek.com/
Local organisations are coming together to “call on politicians to raise their ambition and champion action on climate change. Great Big Green Week community hubs will celebrate local activity, raise the profile of climate change and show why it is relevant to our community and local decision makers.” The Climate Coalition.

“At Cultivate Tees Valley we know the value of working together with local organisations in order to ensure we make a greater difference to local people by sharing expertise and resources. We see Stockton-On-Tees Great Big Green Week as an opportunity to bring together similar, like-minded organisations to collectively look at what we can do to reduce the impact of Climate Change and to also look at how we can influence key decision makers both locally and nationally to make decisions that protect our planet” says Andy Robinson, Director, Cultivate Tees Valley.
“This event offers a timely chance for all to learn about and take action on climate change. Together we can make one small change to care for creation, sustain our local community and protect the wellbeing of our family” says Katharine Lam, Co-ordinator, SOTGBGW.
