The Great Big Green Week is the UK’s biggest call for action on climate change, and will take place this year between 10 and 18 June 2023. Bedford Borough Council is proud to announce its participation and is planning a wide range of events.
Now in its third year, Great Big Green Week continues to raise awareness of the impacts of climate change while also making a connection with these issues in communities like Bedford.
At the same time, people from all walks of life will be showcasing actions to tackle climate change, creating a better world, for us now and for the next generation. In Bedford we will have Yoga and Wellbeing in the Park, Letters to Tomorrow, a number of walks, a plant sale, talks, litter picks and other events.
