Sir Paul McCartney, actress Sienna Miller, TV presenter Michael Palin, supermodel Lily Cole and designer Vivienne Westwood are just a few of the first stars to back Climate Week – a new campaign aiming to generate action on climate change across society.
Climate Week is a supercharged national occasion that offers an annual renewal of our ambition and confidence to combat climate change. It is for everyone wanting to do their bit to protect our planet and create a secure future.
Climate Week will shine a spotlight on the many positive steps already being taken in workplaces and communities across Britain. The power of these real, practical examples – the small improvements and the big innovations – will then inspire millions more people.
Thousands of businesses, charities, schools, councils and others will run events during Climate Week on 21-27 March 2011. They will show what can be achieved, share ideas and encourage thousands more to act during the rest of the year.
You can help create a massive movement for change by making Climate Week happen where you are. Ask an organisation or group you know, such as your workplace or local school, to run an event.
Other leaders and power-brokers supporting Climate Week include the British Prime Minister David Cameron, former US Vice President Al Gore, economist Lord Nicholas Stern and Kofi Annan, the former UN General Secretary-General and Nobel Peace Prize laureate.
