Climate change poses a phenomenal challenge to Humanity, yet it is also an incredible opportunity to create a new economy that works for all, and protects the one planet we’ve got. Plenty of people out there are striving to making this vision a reality. We are the Ecopreneurs for the Climate in Reading, part of a global movement tackling climate change via sound, innovative, and cooperative business CO2lutions.
