Here we go again.
Green Travel to Green Places has been very quiet for a couple of years but is about to get noisy again. I’m off setting of for London on 11th June for a Climate Rally! The ‘Speak Up, For The Love Of…’ event will take place on the 17th of June so I’d better not be late!
I thought it would be fun to get to the rally – a mass lobby of MPs – by the greenest way I know – i.e. by bike. But after thinking about it an the route since January I now realise there are less than 3 months till I set off and I’ve not done any training!
Through this challenge I aim to raise awareness of the need for climate action and hopefully raise some money for RSPB and Stop Climate Chaos Scotland http://www.stopclimatechaos.org/ . In my job I have been working on the ‘For The Love Of..’ campaign http://fortheloveof.org.uk/ which is seeking commitment from world leaders for a strong climate deal at the UN conference in Paris in December. ‘Unless politicians know this is something we all care about, they won’t have the mandate to act. So this is the time for everyone to show our politicians that we do care, that this issue is really important to us. Because it affects the things we love most.’
My plan is to stop at RSPB reserves along my route through the east of England. More details of the route to come soon. Any one who wants to join the cycle for all or part of the route, let me know.
