Holme Valley Great Big Green Week from fairandfunky

Holme Valley Green Week (30th September – 6th October) is an initiative fairandfunky are establishing in the Holme Valley calendar inspired by the Climate Coalition. It is a week of collaborative action to combat climate change with events, workshops, exhibitions and more.

The vision is for scheduled Holme Valley Green Week events to take place, alongside individuals, businesses and organisations who host their own ‘Green’ themed activities throughout the week, that fairandfunky will promote via social media channels and website. This could be anything from individuals sharing the little steps they take to change the world, to businesses sharing a green window display, to organisations running and hosting events.

All Holme Valley Green Week activities are open to all, whether you are passionate about climate action and climate change, or just want to find out what’s happening. Perhaps your workplace has embarked on a sustainability programme, or you’d like to be inspired to make little changes at home. Or maybe you just want to meet like-minded people at relaxed social occasions. We hope there will be something for everyone. Planned events so far are:

Green Drinks networking at Cafe Root – Monday 30th September 6-8pm A chance for people to get together and enjoy a Fairtrade brew or locally sourced beer. Expect friendly conversations, sharing ideas, positive connections, networking and more! The evening is an informal event but there will be a guest speaker presentation at 6:30pm with opportunity for Q&A afterwards. Please CLICK HERE to register for your free ticket.
