The Great Big Green Week in Ealing

The Great Big Green Week is a nationwide celebration of the local climate action that is being taken in communities throughout the country. Between 18th-26th September, there will be thousands of climate-positive events taking place and Ealing is no different.

Below you will find a collection of the events that are taking place across Ealing from a number of our local partners and other environmentally conscious groups in the borough. Interested in meeting new people? Trying something new? Keen to make a difference to your community? Why not act for Ealing by choosing an event in your area and volunteer your time to do all of this and support our fantastic partners?

The varied events taking place in Ealing are a great opportunity to photograph climate positive people and enter our brand new photography competition for the chance to have your work displayed across the borough!
