ride planet earth I copy and past this call out from Kim, wich is member of Travellers of the Earth network.

Dear all,

My name is Kim Nguyen, I am currently cycling from Australia to Denmark to encourage action on climate change. I am the project manager for Ride Planet Earth. You can see all about this project at rideplanetearth.org.

Our project culminates on 6th Dec this year with a cycling environmental action that is taking place all over the world. This action is made up of a series of simultaneous cycling events, people taking to highways, streets and dirt tracks wherever they are, the day before the major UN Climate Change negotiations begin in Copenhagen on Dec 7th.

The aim of the event is three-fold. To raise awareness of the current impacts of climate change on vulnerable communities across the globe, especially Africa, Asia and South America. To demonstrate the capacity and willingness of ordinary people to combat climate change. And thirdly, to demand that our governments agree to take the action necessary by the end of the Copenhagen negotiations. This demands can be seen on the front page at rideplanetearth.org.

If you would like to support this project, by organising rides as part of the event or passing on this request to other organisations, please email me at kim@rideplanetearth.org.

Your help will be greatly, greatly appreciated. Warm Regards,

Kim Nguyen
