If not now, then when? If not us, then who? We can no longer postpone taking serious measures to reduce greenhouse emissions sharply, or to deal with other environmental problems. If adults alive today don't take action immediately, there won't be another opportunity for our children and grandchildren.

Obviously, governments all around the world need to act, but there are things that individuals and groups of all sizes can do to cut their own emissions and to hurry governments and industry along. Most effectively by coming together. Which is what this month's Big Green Climate Week is all about.

In Enfield around 100 groups, brought together under the auspices of the Enfield Climate Action Forum (EnCAF), are putting on 100 separate events of all sorts: plays, poetry, walks, a bike ride, play streets, a food festival, an apple day, online meetings, a fair trade chocolate and wine tasting, music, the list goes on... Despite the seriousness of the issue, this is a festival - a joyful expression of mutual pleasure in one another's company, as we get together to safeguard the tuture.

There's something for everyone, so please join in.

Joining together to call on politicians to raise their ambition and champion action on climate change.

The Great Big Green Week will be largest event for climate and nature ever seen in the UK. Thousands of events will celebrate how communities are taking action to tackle climate change and protect green spaces, and encourage others to get involved too.

Nationwide, the Great Big Green Week is being coordinated by the Climate Coalition. Locally, we will be holding Enfield's Great Big Green Climate Festival, coordinated by the Enfield Climate Action Forum (EnCAF). EnCAF harnesses the expertise and energy of more than 80 different groups from around the borough. There will be walks, talks, an apple day, a food festival, a chance to try a bicycle or tricycle, a guided bike ride touring Enfield's wetlands, online events and an all-day fair - bringing concerned people together and celebrating our potential for joint action.
