Finding an event to hook your employee wellbeing or sustainability programme around is a great shout. It helps to give you some focus while making your employees feel like they’re part of something far bigger. Empowering stuff!
Below are some events we've picked out as good opportunities for businesses to get involved.
Whether you're looking to build workplace culture, support employee health and wellbeing, or raise your profile as a sustainable business, there should be something for you.
World Environment Day sets out to raise global awareness of the importance of our natural environment and to encourage people to take positive environmental action. It is led by the UN Environment Programme (UNEP) and takes place every year on 5 June.

Earth Day is a global movement in it's 47th year, raising awareness and action around critical environmental issues from reforestation to fossil fuel divestment.
It creates a good opportunity to engage staff in sustainability. Raise pledges during the build up to the day itself (which falls on a Saturday this year); watch them turn into long term habits over the following months, thanks to our carefully designed reminders and reporting dashboards.
It may be a day, not a week, but our guide to running a Green Week could come in handy.
Good Deeds Day is a global day where people from 75 countries come together to do good deeds for the benefit of others and the planet. 1.5million people participated in 2016. It is based on the simple idea that everyone can do something good, be it large or small, to improve the lives of others and change the world positively.
Get involved by making a pledge to do one of our Do Actions. There are over 50 to choose from, all simple habits that are good for the health of people and planet.
If you work at a B Corp, why not sign up to Do Nation Pro and get your colleagues to join in with our Good Deeds Day challenge? We’re pitting B Corps against each other to see whose staff can make the most pledges and save the most carbon around Good Deeds Day.
Use these two weeks to put supply chains and procurement into the spotlight. You may be working hard on this at a business level, but what are your employees doing in their personal lives, and are they aware of your efforts?
If your university is taking part in People & Planet's Go Green Week or running it's own green week independently: ask staff and students to record pledges during the week itself and watch the pledges turn into habits over the following months, thanks to our carefully designed reminders and reporting dashboards.
