Read our run-down of the best and most interesting environmental volunteering opportunities out there…
Did you forget to turn the light off? Too lazy to separate your recycling rubbish from organic? Do you keep the water running while brushing your teeth?
It’s now widely accepted that global warming is a reality – so if the answer to any of these questions is “yes”, the penguins in Antarctica are looking at you in shame!
But fear not, for there is hope. Climate Week is your chance to redeem yourself and make it up to Mother Earth.
Climate Week is held to create awareness for businesses, schools and individuals on how to live an envrionmentally sustainable lifestyle. There are loads of fun events like swap sales, performances, seminars and programs to commemorate climate change.
Here are our top tips on doing the green thing this year…

Strap on your wellies and buck up! Our environmental volunteering opportunities involve assisting charities in planting trees, organising walking festivals and creating displays in some of the most breath-taking locations in the UK. From coastal regions to forests, take your pick and have fun in the sun or do a rain dance (depending on the British weather of course!)!
Animals are unfortunately the silent victims when the eco-system goes bad, so every little bit helps. Whether it’s translating a whale song (seriously!) to helping scientists understand how Orca’s communicate or join animal rescue teams all over the UK to aid Britain’s endangered species.
For all you city slickers who aren’t gung-ho about the country side, we don’t judge. There are plenty of opportunities to get involved in green events that spread the message on climate change. You can opt to assist offices, take part in events, run cycle tours or even organise your own events.
Get yourself in the mood with an array of eco-related movies screenings around the UK organised by Climate Week and other organisations.
Take Action now!
So whether you are trimming hedges, removing cans from waterways to help sea life or joining a carpool – rest assured, the penguins in Antarctica will have reason to salute you!
Here in the vInspired Digital team, we kick-started Climate Week by investing in this office plant – making the office that little bit more greener!
