We believe taking more time off work is the key to uncoupling ourselves from the treadmill of consumerism and the carbon emissions that comes with it. Many of our members take 1-2 months off a year to spend on conservation/climate change projects. What are you waiting for? Get stuck in!
#ClimateKilometre is made up of a collection of volunteers who met through the Campaign against Climate Change network, supported by members of the Oxford Climate Society. We also have close ties with TimeToCycle! who organised the 5-day ride to Paris in Dec 2015.
The group was inspired by Erlend Knudsen and Daniel Price of Pole to Paris, who ran and cycled to COP21 from the North and South Poles. We set up our Strava group to co-ordinate the UK run-legs and a ride in Paris in Dec 2015.
We believe in strengthening ties between the adventure/sporting community and climate 'activism'.
