Green Week

Green Week is all about sustainability and what you can do yourself to reduce climate disruption. Sustainability is everywhere. But rather than talking about CO2 and airplane taxes, it’s time to take action and do something yourself. Hence, this week will be bursting with activities that focus on smart individual solutions, on what you can do locally, and on how to find the green hero within yourself!
