Earlier this week i pointed out that 2010 was the hottest year that have been measured globally while surveys on this have been undertaken, and that 2011 looks like its going to be even hotter. In a response to my blog my  colleague Raj pointed out 21-27 March is national climate week, and asked, what are you going to do to make a change? We have since been throwing the idea of doing something around the office and so far we have come up with ideas such as walking or biking to work, cutting down on printing, reducing heat use and turning of our screens when we go on lunch break, plus the slighty more radical suggestion of fitting solar panels to the roof top of our offices. Although still very valid, these ideas are well known and should ideally be common practice in all offices, we are still looking for the really radical green  ideas. Luckily, while we are still looking, there are already lots of great stories of local eco-entrepreneurship out there, such as the ones told by Majora Carter below.
