No more excuses - we must change course to tackle the climate emergency.

This November, the pivotal COP26 climate talks will take place in Glasgow. These will set a pathway for the global community for years to come. All eyes will be on the UK for a positive lead.

Across the UK, young people are calling for urgent climate action. From Glasgow to Plymouth, Liverpool to Brighton, they're joining forces with their teachers to transform our schools and lead the way towards a zero carbon future. Schools can be trailblazers for sustainability and will play a critical role in helping the UK cut carbon emission levels. At the very centre of our communities, they can respond to young peoples' calls for action and encourage local families and businesses to join them in taking on the climate crisis.

Ride to COP26.

Iceni Projects, with 14 cyclists, will cycle over 700 kilometres to COP26 in Glasgow to raise funds in support of the Lets Go Zero campaign. Launched by Ashden, Let's Go Zero (LGZ) is the national campaign uniting teachers, pupils, parents and their schools as they all work together to be zero carbon by 2030. The campaign is run by a coalition of eight major NGOs supporting schools on sustainability, led by Ashden, and including Global Action Plan, WWF, Sustrans, Soil Association, Fairtrade Foundation, EcoSchools and Carbon Trust. To date, over 450 schools have joined the campaign and are committed to taking action.

Along the course of the cycle route, the Iceni cyclists will be visiting many of the young people and their teachers working together through the Let's Go Zero campaign to transform our schools and help safeguard the our planet for future generations. We are in no doubt that the stories we will hear will provide all the inspiration necessary to make it through the potentially arduous weather conditions, which have become increasingly unpredictable through the advent of climate change.

The importance of a campaign like Let's Go Zero should not be underestimated. Not only is it playing a fundamental part in bringing schools and the education system on board in fighting the climate crisis. It is allowing the schools to lead by example in inspiring the young people it educates about how to act on climate change and keeping the earth's health at the heart of every decision we make. - Daze Aghaji, Youth Climate Justice Activist, Political Candidate, and Student.
