Climate Week UK 21-27 March 2011

Waterless washing machines and hydrogen fueled busses are just some of the ideas being discussed as part of  Climate Week UK this week. The aim is to celebrate positive steps that have been made to combat climate change. It is hoped that, by focussing on the positive rather than the negative that this will provide momentum for thousands of other initiatives accross the nation in the future.

This means that, right now there are thousands of businesses, charities, schools, and organisations  putting on all kinds of events, nationwide.    Events include a summit of religious leaders and  Britain’s largest environmental competition.

Climate Week UK involves partners from Business, Education,  Politics, Local Government and the Science communities.  Eminent names involved include David Cameron the Prime Minister, Kofi Annan (former UN Secretary General) Michael Palin, Sir Paul McCartney, Musicians Mark Ronson and Jarvis Cocker and actress Sienna Miller.

There’s still time to get involved as any gesture counts  no matter how small, because hopefully this will be a story that will run and run.

“Climate Week is about……..a better future.  What could be more important?” Michael Palin
