Saturday 8 June – Friday 21 June 2024

ReadingCAN is back this summer with the 5th annual Reading Climate Festivaltwo weeks of free events to inspire collective climate action in Reading.

What’s on?

There’s something for everyone:

  • A chance to be part of a collective pledge to work towards net zero in Reading
  • A sustainable fashion show curated from local charity shops
  • Wellbeing walks and talks about our amazing local nature
  • Events to help householders reduce bills and create warmer homes
  • A Big Lunch in Forbury Gardens for the whole community
