Jo Swinson has asked local organisations to support the UK-wide Climate Week in March 2011.
Jo has encouraged local businesses, organisations, schools and community groups to participate in Climate Week, 21 – 27th March 2011. The week will highlight the positive steps being taken in every part of society to combat climate change, and is supported by a range of groups and individuals from the Prime Minister to the National Trust.
By starting to plan now, local organisations can get involved and stage events such as talks, workshops, open days or exhibitions, or submit entries for Climate Week awards and challenges. Commenting, Jo said:
“I encourage groups and organisations in East Dunbartonshire to get ready for Climate Week and use this fantastic opportunity to showcase practical examples – whether small improvements or big innovations – of how they are helping to combat climate change.
“With your help, East Dunbartonshire’s Climate Week will be a unique opportunity to inspire others to raise their game in going ‘green’. In the coming weeks, I will be looking out for local organisations whose environmentally-friendly initiatives are worthy of a prestigious Climate Week Award.
“Climate Week is for everyone who wants to do their bit to secure the future of our planet, and I hope individuals will ask groups or businesses in their local area to plan an event or activity in time for 21-27th March.”
