About the campaign

Green Action Week – 1 – 7 October 2018 – is a global campaign to promote sustainable consumption. Each year in October, organisations around the world take joint action to promote a common cause. Last year 53 civil society organisations in 29 countries in Africa, Asia, Europe, and the Americas participated in the campaign.

“Organic food and farming for all” was the campaign focus for the Green Action Week 2013-2017. Sustainable production requires sustainable consumption. If you eat more organic – producers will produce more organic!

 

The new theme for 2018 and onwards is Sharing Community. “We want to ignite cultures of sharing and collaboration to make sure everyone has sustainable access to goods and services”.

 

Green Action Week is an initiative by the Swedish Society for Nature Conservation (SSNC) and is carried out in coordination with Consumers International (CI).

The Swedish Society for Nature Conservation is Sweden’s largest environmental organisation with 226 000 members and about 40 partners all over the world. Since 1909 SSNC has been working at local, regional, national and international level, creating opinion and challenging business leaders and politicians to take action.

Consumers International is the world federation of consumer groups that, working together with its members, serves as the only independent and authoritative global voice for consumers.
