TCE Universe and Business Model

We have to make all this happen somehow. The universe and business model have been developed over a number of years and is currently being tested out in southern Illinois. Anyone, anywhere, is welcome to take and use these platforms and ideas for their own climate economy in their own location. We will have training for this at some point in the future. For now, you are welcome to use our platforms or develop your own. Let’s get people building climate ventures and taking target actions! On CLEANetwork.com, people get points for learning, creating and doing things on the site.
