While the international community bickers about what a green future should look like, local groups and businesses around the UK have been just getting on with it, laying the groundwork for a world of green jobs and a green economy.
We wanted to find out more about what everyone has been up to, so we asked readers what they were doing, and you responded with alacrity – filling our inboxes with wonderful enterprises all over Britain. It turns out that all over the country, local authorities have been pushing for green action, local communities are setting up their own, amazing green dreams, and businesses are inventively figuring out better ways to do things.
The low carbon economy is already, according to the exclusive analysis we release today, larger than the UK’s manufacturing sector, employing more than 1.2m people, and growing rapidly.
Now, the Guardian’s environment and business desks have teamed up to look a little more closely. Over the next week, our journalists will report back from some of these projects, and from some of the businesses and local authorities who are starting the revolution all by themselves.
And we’re always keen to hear more. If you’re setting up a green business, or if you do a green job, please get in touch and let us know about it.
