About the Together on Climate Change Festival

We are planning to hold a borough wide Climate Change Festival to coincide with the 2021 United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP26) in Glasgow.

There will be a mixture of virtual and in-person events held throughout the week of the festival, from Monday 8 to Saturday 13 November 2021.

Festival aims

The festival aims to bring together residents, businesses, community groups and key stakeholders from across the borough to raise awareness of climate change issues.

Building on the Virtual Climate Summit held in November 2020, we want to create a borough wide week of activities, to share information, tips and advice with residents, so that we can all make the changes needed to help us to achieve our climate change targets in line with the Wandsworth Environment and Sustainability Strategy (WESS), and reduce borough-wide emissions.

The festival will be about learning about climate change, what everyone can do to reduce carbon emissions and showcase the good work already happening across the borough on climate change.

All events are aiming to be informative and family friendly.

Events

Throughout the week Monday 8 to Friday 12 November 2021, fringe events will be held online and in-person across the borough in various locations. There will be council-led events and activities alongside information sessions run by local groups, businesses and other partners, as well as pop-up shops/information hubs across the borough.

We will host a mix of activities and information sessions throughout the week, for example:

  • Training on Greening your Business
  • Carbon Literacy Taster Session
  • How to set up and support a community group – advice on funding 

To round off the week the large scale in person event will take place on Saturday 13 November 2021 – venue TBC.

Holding an event

We are inviting local partners and organisations to participate in what will be a landmark event for action on climate change in Wandsworth.

To be considered, you must submit an expression of interest by Thursday 30 September 2021.
