June is environment month in High Peak

Published on 9 June 2023

Next week is 'Great Big Green Week' where people are encouraged to share what inspires them to tackle climate change and protect nature -  but that's not the only green activity taking place in June.

From the Wildlife Trust's '30 Days Wild' campaign, which challenges everyone to do one wild thing a day, to scavenger hunts in your local park, there's plenty going on in the High Peak.

Executive Councillor for Climate Change and the Environment, Jean Todd, said: "Our changing climate is something that affects us all so it's important that our response to managing that change is also a collective effort.

"From reducing, re-using and recycling the things we no longer want to pledging action to reduce our individual carbon footprint, there are lots of easy things we can all do.

"So please take part in Big Green Week and 30 Days Wild, or just get out and about to enjoy the beautiful parks and open spaces here in the High Peak this June."

Keep an eye on our social media pages where we will be sharing other community events and ideas to be a bit greener.

Since declaring a climate emergency, the Council has set out how it will tackle CO2 emissions from its services and activities - and also what individuals, groups and organisations across the District can all do to help the environment. You can read the plans here.
