How can I get involved?

Plan your Event

1. Plan your Event

All you have to do is to organise an event, activity or action in your community throughout September.
 

A focus on Climate, Community & Justice is key – from talks to workshops, from art installations, to performances, to actions. It can be in-person, online or both.

2. Use the Climate Fringe Festival Logo

Add the Climate Fringe logo on any communications about your event – images, posters, social media posts, digital flyers, etc.
