“Climate Rush is inspired by the actions of the Suffragettes 100 years ago, who showed that peaceful civil disobedience could inspire positive change. We are a diverse group of women and men who are determined to raise awareness of the biggest threat facing humanity today – that of Climate Change. Our government acknowledges the huge problems we face from Climate Change, but carries on with business as usual. We demand DEEDS NOT WORDS because individual choice alone cannot curb CO2 emissions if we are to stop runaway global warming.”
Climate Rush are going on a roadshow! 16 suffragettes, 3 horses and 2 caravans will be traipsing around the South West, joined by scientists, comedians and YOU (and me) in an effort to raise awareness of global climate issues and how we, locally, can make a difference.
The roadshow begins in Sipson on the 4th of September, taking in Oxford, Stroud, Exeter and Bristol (among others) along the way. I’ll definitely be there for the Bristol portion, which focuses on the fact that while Bristol is England’s first cycling city, the public transport is more expensive than London!
So if you live anywhere in England, get your rears down to the South-West (sustainably, of course) and get involved! Email them for more information, or if you want to help out and get involved!
See you there!
