Green Great Britain Week is a government initiative which takes place the week commencing 15th October 2018. It will showcase the benefits clean growth will bring to all parts of society – from high skilled jobs to cleaner air. It will be a week of announcements, events and media across the UK designed to highlight the scale of the opportunities from clean growth, how business and the public can contribute to reducing emissions and improve quality of life as part of the Clean Growth Grand Challenge under the Industrial Strategy.
This year the week will focus on celebrating UK leadership on climate change, marking the 10-year anniversary of the Climate Change Act, highlighting the business opportunity from clean growth, and providing a platform for the latest research on the impacts of climate change.
How you can be involved
NERC are working with BEIS on the Climate Science Day on Monday 15th October, which will be held at the Natural History Museum (NHM). There will be a talk for visitors to the museum aimed at GCSE and A-Level students. We are looking for Early Career Researchers to give talks in a ‘Nature Live’ setup on topics such as climate models, resilience, climate change, social sciences in climate change etc. This is a great opportunity for budding researchers to engage with this audience, and you would work with NHM to create an interactive talk.
