Great Big Green Week takes place between the 18th and 26th September to celebrate action on climate change. Lots of Chesham groups are getting involved – there is a programme of events on Chesham Town Council’s web site. The aim of the week is to highlight to politicians, the importance of meaningful outcomes from COP26, the United Nation’s talks on climate change.

In turn this is having devastating effects on farming communities.
