What is RewriteClimate?
RewriteClimate is a self-directed online programme that explains why climate change is happening, but also emphasises the solutions and innovations we have to change the world. We believe that if we can change how people feel about the issue of climate change, we can change the way they respond to climate change.
Ultimately our goal is for you and your business to complete our programme feeling inspired and hopeful about the future, and how your company can contribute positively to the planet and continue to profit at the same time.
