Climate Week, 21-27 March 2011
Climate week is the largest environmental event of the year in the UK pulling together thousands of individuals and organisations across the country to run events and commit to actions which make us think about changing our daily behaviour to become more sustainable.
Essentially it’s collective small actions which become the catalyst for big changes.
At The Adventure Company we have a list of pledges which we are committing to. Please join us and make a pledge - and don't forget to tell your friends.
We hope to continue this each month, so don't forget to keep an eye on how we're getting on, and feel free to make new suggestions on what we can all do to make a difference.
Our Climate Week 21 – 27 March Pledges
Just some of the ideas we've got for reducing our environmental impact - feel free to suggest more, or make up your own!
