Big Ben to Brussels

Supported by Keen Footwear and Marmot, with carbon offsetting by Carbon Foresight. Thanks also to Orbis Globes, Murray PR, the kind folks at Green People and all our backers through Kickstarter.

The Mission:
To send a message to the COP15 conference expressing our desire for action on climate change. Come join us!

This summer Roz rowed solo 2,600 miles across the Pacific from Hawaii to Kiribati, where she saw the human face of climate change. Kiribati, a scattering of small coral atolls, will be uninhabitable within the next 50 years as climate change causes rises in sea level and increasingly frequent major weather events. Click here to watch a video about Kiribati and climate change.

Big Ben to Brussels:
Roz is now taking a message to the climate change conference in Copenhagen, in her role as United Nations “Climate Hero”. With a small group of friends she will set out on Nov 20 to walk 200 miles from Big Ben to Brussels, where she will join the United Nations Climate Express train for the remainder of the journey to Copenhagen. Click here to meet the team.

Earth Balls:
During the walk they will gather signatures on inflatable “Earth” balls, to be delivered to the conference as a petition calling on the delegates to take decisive action on climate change so that more countries and regions do not suffer the same fate as Kiribati.

The Route:
Come and join us! For an hour, for half a day, for a full day, or even the whole trip. Click here for details of the route. And we’d love to interview you for our film to find out who you are and why you care about climate change.
