Green Action Week

Green Action Week is a global campaign to promote sustainable consumption. Each year in October, organisations around the world take joint action to promote a common cause. Last year, 50 civil society organisations in 30 countries in Africa, Asia, Europe, Australia, and the Americas participated in the campaign.

The theme since 2018 has been ‘Sharing Community’. “We want to ignite cultures of sharing and collaboration to make sure everyone has sustainable access to goods and services”. Find out more about the theme, what it looks like in practice, and how to get involved in 2021 in this guide.

Green Action Week is an initiative by the Swedish Society for Nature Conservation (SSNC), starting in Sweden in 1990 and growing to become an international partnership from 2010 – and it is carried out in coordination with Consumers International.

The Swedish Society for Nature Conservation is Sweden’s largest environmental organisation with over 200 000 members and about 45 partners all over the world. Since 1909 SSNC has been working at local, regional, national and international level, creating opinion and challenging business leaders and politicians to take action.
