Story

We've decided to cycle the 260 miles to Copenhagen (via a north sea ferry!), from 5th to 12th December, to make our voices heard at The UN Climate Summit in Copenhagen, and to raise money for both Friends of the Earth, and Re~Cycle: Bicycle Aid For Africa.  It's an attempt, in our own small way, to raise awareness of the importance of the summit and the desperate need for a meaningful climate deal before it's too late.

The UN Climate Summit takes place in Copenhagen from Dec 7th to Dec 18th.  To maximise our chances of preventing runaway climate change, we must quickly and massively cut global emissions. To quickly and massively cut global emissions we need a binding international treaty and the last chance we have to get that treaty within the timescale of the physics of the planet is the UN Climate Summit.  Hence the "most important meeting in human history" moniker.  We have the technology - we just need the political will and binding targets to secure a sustainable future for all.

Please, if you can, sponsor us, and help Friends of the Earth (Friends of the Earth: Home) with their vital campaigning to prevent runaway climate change.
