GREEN EVENT

CALENDFAR 2024

Learning to live more sustainably

Knowing what to do about climate change is not always easy, and even when you do know taking the required action can be difficult. Changing to a more sustainable way of living and caring more for the natural world doesn’t always come easy in our modern day world, but there are many local, national and international events and activities that might help you to focus and act on the things you can do.

As a parish we are keen to help our village communities make the changes needed to address the climate crisis and we will therefore be raising awareness of, and where possible getting involved, with one eco related activity/event each month. The calendar below shows you what they are. We will publish full details and dates where needed, of each at the appropriate time.

Other special days, weeks and events that draw attention to environmental issues throughout the year are also shown below.
