More > klimaatactie te ondernemen. Om klimaatverandering te bestrijden, is het nodig dat bedrijven en burgers zich duurzaam gedragen.   De meeste mensen en bedrijven zijn bereid om een duurzaamheid te omarmen.

We doen dit door informatie te geven (wat is duurzaamheid?), evenals concrete tips (hoe doe ik duurzaam boodschappen?), en barrières te benoemen (waarom heerst er onzekerheid over klimaatverandering?). Wanneer mensen zich bewustzijn van de barrières, zij goed geïnformeerd zijn en concrete handvaten hebben, kunnen we een grote stap zetten naar een duurzame wereld.< Less
