Great Big Green Week 2021

Logo of The Great Big Green Week. Floral in green, yellow and orange.

September 18th to 26th

Local events as part of a national week to raise the profile of climate change and nature, show why it is relevant to our community and celebrate local activity. Sign up to get your own event on the map – anything from an open garden to a film showing.

Watch this space for a Transition Tavistock event during the week, and for opportunities to pull together publicity for Great Big Green Week activities in the Tavistock area.

As a unifying theme for Great Big Green Week in the Tamar Valley and West Devon, Art & Energy Collective, supported by Tamar Energy Community, invite groups to join in their inspiring Moths to a Flame project. This involves hosting moth-making events or mini-installations where people can hang moths they’ve made (from milk bottles – instructions here!), before or during the week. The installations will be collected in plenty of time to be taken to Glasgow for a mass participation artwork, with messages to the COP26 climate summit, recorded by people making moths, shared online. This is an enjoyable opportunity for people to come together, which may be a stepping stone to developing collective action to combat climate change. Contact kate@tamarenergycommunity.com to find out more or offer help with this.

 We’ll share news of here of other things going on locally as part of the week.
