John's Environment time capsule 20th Anniversary page
Going by Brompton to Kew in a competitive ride for Population Matters because 2014 is 20th anniversary of www.ecotimecapsule.com
We promote smaller families to make the world a better place
My charity is www.populationmatters.org because of the ever greater urgency to reduce both our environmental footprints and the number of feet - ie the number of humans doing the footprinting - through voluntary contraception. This will be a competition between cycling (me on my Brompton & others), running (my son Dr Chris Guillebaud & others), London Underground and a car. We will finish at Kew where is buried the eco-timecapsule that is based on the saying "we have not inherited the earth from our grandparents, we have borrowed it from our grandchildren". In 1994 we saw how angry they will be if we irreversibly wreck their loan....So we said “sorry” to them, two generations later. But, even more important, we intend that finders of the timecapsule in 2044 will wonder why we apologised! Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving – they’ll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they’ll send your money directly to the charity.
