The innovations we already possess are multiple and together with ditching the car for a bicycle, rethinking our diets, getting involved in ecological projects around the planet, and altering shopping habits. Certainly, the best frontier in fighting climate change is taking place on home front, from the architecture through to our dinner plate
It's been a longstanding passion of mine, for as long as I can remember, to find a way to help women and girls to live happy and empowered lives, I just didn't know how I was going to go about it.
