That is the questions that visitors to Reading Museum’s new Story of Reading gallery are invited to explore through the Resourceful Reading display, which is in the Community Cabinet throughout April and May 2019.
The display is a collaboration between Reading Sustainability Centre and Reading Museum to showcase some of the many things that people and communities in Reading are already doing to make Reading more sustainable.
Global agreements and action by governments remain critical if we are to make change on the scale and at the speed required to address the major challenges of climate change, biodiversity loss and resource depletion.
But action at a local level is also important. No action is too small. Lots of small actions quickly add up.
If inspiration were needed, Greta Thunberg and the Youth Strike 4 Climate movement provides a great example of how a seemingly insignificant lone stand can grow to have massive global impact.
