Green Action Week is a global campaign to promote sustainable consumption.
Over 50 civil society groups in Africa, Asia, Europe and Latin America took part last year.
Green Action Week takes place on 30th September -6th October, but activities carry on the whole year.
Green Action Week is an initiative of the Swedish Society for Nature Conservation and is carried out in coordination with Consumers International.
Unsustainable consumption is a relatively new invention, and all over the world communities are pushing back against it. When people collaborate and share goods and services, it benefits the community as well as the environment.
We face a crisis of people and planet: too many people do not have equal access to the goods and services we need for a decent life, and too much stress is being put on the planet – our shared home.
Green Action Week focuses on sustainable consumption because it is crucial to tackle both the social and environmental causes of this crisis.
Are you a group thinking about getting involved in Green Action Week 2019? We have developed resources to help you plan activities that are strategic and focused on Sharing Community.
We recommend you download this package of resources together, as they work best with each other:
