The Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea will be celebrating national Climate Week this year from Monday 2 to Sunday 8 March 2015.

The Council will be hosting a number of community-based events across Kensington and Chelsea where you can learn more about what is being done to combat climate change and also what you can do to save energy in your home. If you are interested in leading the way in reducing carbon emissions in your local area, consider joining RBKC climate week.

climatechangeClimate Week is Britain’s biggest climate change campaign, inspiring a new wave of action to create a sustainable future. Each year, half a million people attend over 3,000 events run by schools, businesses, charities and councils, in Britain’s biggest environmental occasion.

Some of the exciting events lined up throughout the borough include:

  • A tour of the borough’s biggest kitchen garden
  • Carbon conversations at the farmers’ market with Imperial College
  • An eco treasure hunt in Holland park for children and parents with Ecology Centre
  • A film screening where Repowering London will be showcasing successful community energy projects developed by other communities in London

The Council is hoping that the Climate Week will inspire and encourage people to start working together and make small energy-reduction actions in their local areas.

There will be plenty of opportunities for everybody to get involved and win prizes at each event.

You can see the full series of events in the borough online at www.rbkc.gov.uk/climateweek. All events are free and we’d love for you to join us for as many as possible.

Your participation will receive support, guidance and recognition from the Council. Please email environment@rbkc.gov.uk for more information.
