The science is indisputable, the impact of climate change is being experienced now, and levels of concern are high. BUT…. global emissions continue to rise. Urgent action is required by us all, individually and together.
We are using the occasion of COP26 and the mechanism of a 510 mile walk from London to Glasgow to engage with citizens, local government, businesses, students and civil society on climate action. We want to hear and amplify the stories and examples of climate action we come across, and motivate the less engaged to increase their involvement and understanding.
Engagement will happen in three ways: over 500 individual conversations with those we meet on the way, 8 events bringing together the different stakeholders mentioned above, and 4 school visits. More detail on the walk and its objectives can be found here: www.walk2cop26.com.
The core funding for the Walk has been provided by the walkers and supporters. However, we would like to record the stories we hear on the walk and play these back on completion in a short film and release with a report. The film will use the walk and the context of COP 26 to highlight the need to do more, the building motivation to act, and stories of current initiatives that are making a difference.
Your donation will go towards funding this film. Footage will also be included in our social media presence during the walk. We want massive amplification of the good news stories we encounter on the way but also the challenges that people experience in moving to action on climate change.
Donors will receive:
- Weekly updates on progress
- Your name on the website and film (unless you opt out)
- Access to donor specific sessions on Club House during the Walk
Thank you for your support. If you want to get involved in a different way then please get in touch with us at [email protected]
If we don't reach our target
If the target to fund the film is not met, we will scale back ambition by reducing filming days, length of film etc. All monies raised will be donated to Drivers for Changes which is administering the Walk in accordance with the objects of the registered charity. The charitable objects are “to advance the education of the public, national and local government and businesses on climate change, in such ways as the charity trustees think fit, including but not limited to a/ encouraging cross stakeholder dialogue and b/ developing the skills, capacities and capabilities of individuals to stimulate a sense of urgency, agency and action to combat climate change”.
