Cycle to Copenhagen from Brisbane
Ride Planet Earth: On 6th December 2009 cyclists across the planet will take to the streets demonstrating the capacity and willingness of ordinary people to take action against dangerous climate change.
The next day, in Copenhagen Denmark, the most important climate change negotiations in more than a decade will begin. We hope our actions will help convince the government delegations to take action as well.
Ride Planet Earth is promoting behaviour change, focusing on environmentally sustainable transport and travel, as part of the action necessary to fight dangerous climate change. Carbon fuel based transport and travel accounts for roughly 35% of industrialised nations’ carbon emissions. Therefore addressing this issue is key to ensuring a safe and stable climate.
