Global Action Plan

Description

Global Action Plan was created in 1993 as a different kind of environmental organisation, focusing on people and how they can take practical action in their everyday lives for a better world. It was a simple idea with big implications. Offices have opened around the world to take up the challenge, and so create the climate for change. In the UK, it has helped thousands of people and organisations to make substantial environmental and financial savings.
