Climate Week is Britain’s biggest climate change campaign - a supercharged national occasion to inspire a new wave of action on climate change. During the week of 4 -10 March 2013, thousands of events and activities planned by organisations from every part of society will showcase real, practical ways to combat climate change.
The Climate Week Challenge is fun, free and easy to organise for your school to take part in Climate Week.
It can be held on any day during Climate Week. The Challenge will be revealed to teachers a week beforehand.
Teams of students are challenged to come up with creative solutions to climate change with entries judged by a celebrity judging panel.
It is Britain's biggest ever environmental competition; over 130,000 young people take part.
Winning ideas have included the Water Pebble –a gadget designed to save water by timing how long we spend in the shower– and the Eco-Fridge – a fridge powered by the energy from sound waves.
