Welcome to Sustainable Dawlish (Transition)
Great Big Green Week
Sustainable Dawlish is coordinating a Great Big Green Week of Events in Dawlish linked to The Climate Coalition's Great Big Green Week national initiative. The purpose of the Great Big Green Week Event is to celebrate and promote climate action, inform the Dawlish Community about climate initiatives and the ways in which they, themselves, can make a difference to avert Climate catastrophe.
