How to run a Climate Week Swap
The simplest way to run a Climate Week Swap is just to invite friends, work colleagues or neighbours for an hour of swapping. Everyone comes with as much or as little to swap as they want.
A more organised system is to give everyone tickets when they arrive – if someone brings eight things for the swap pile, they receive eight tickets. They can then exchange their tickets for eight things they choose to take home. This might work well if you run a big event open to the public.
Or, you can run a Climate Week Swap that lasts all week (this might be good for workplaces). Just have everyone leave their items in an “honesty corner” and people can bring things and take things when it suits them.
The Climate Week Swap is happening across Britain, as part of the nation’s biggest environmental occasion, Climate Week. It’s the perfect way for people to get together and find great things for themselves and their families, while also helping to combat climate change.
