Caversham GLOBE works in all parts of Reading Borough north of the Thames as well as adjoining areas along the riverside and into South Oxfordshire. We are an independent community-based group funded by donations. We are one of several GLOBE groups set up in Reading in the mid-1990s following the Rio Earth Summit.
