Families invited to learn about taking action at Climate Week North East

Climate Week North East runs until 24 March

TODAY marks the start of Climate Week North East (CWNE, 15 – 24 March), which features a series of free-to-attend events where citizens of all ages can learn what they can do to improve our environment.

Aberdeen City Council Co-Leader Councillor Ian Yuill said: “Climate Week North East is a chance for families to get involved, and for youngsters to learn about the benefits of being climate and nature positive. Climate change is happening now and is a threat to each and every one of us. We all have a part to play in minimising climate change.
