Why have a Green Week?

Oxfordshire Great Big Green Week aims to help and encourage people and organisations  to act to help tackle the climate crisis, and to protect and improve our environment.

The Week will take place five weeks before world leaders meet in Glasgow for the United Nations ‘COP26’ Climate Conference.


More than 80% of people in the UK are worried about climate change. But many are unsure what they can do or how they can make a difference. There’s a lot that can and must be done locally, and there are many active groups across the county. 


Activities during the Week will give people an opportunity to find what they can do, to hear and talk about the current issues, and to undertand how they can use their time and energy to make a difference.


We hope that this will be a time for people and groups to start to act on the climate crisis, and that those already active will be able to reach out to new audiences, and to review and celebrate what they are doing. 


The Oxfordshire Week is part of a national Week supported by many organsations – see


This is a unique opportunity for groups and organisations of all types and sizes to organise something in their town, village, workplace, or school.

The Week is supported by many organisations including: Oxfordshire Association of Local Councils, BBOWT, the Green Arts Oxfordshire Network, Good Food Oxford, the Oxfordshire Community Action Groups, Oxfordshire Women’s Institute, Cyclox, the Oxford Climate Strike Network, Oxford Friends of the Earth, and Cyclox
