Climate week celebrations and events

More than 100 events were held in the North East this month to raise awareness of climate change, according to Climate Week.
Various sectors of the community celebrated Climate Week between 12 and 18 March, from businesses to councils, schools and community groups.
Some 80% of people also said that small actions, like recycling or turning down the hearing can make a difference.
Nearly two thirds (65%) of those asked said climate change matters to them, even if current generations do not see the effects.
Kevin Steele, Chief Executive at Climate Week, said: “Climate Week is an annual renewal of our ambition to combat climate change and create a more sustainable future.
