By walking The Climate Miles, Urgenda is calling attention to the action needed to avert dangerous climate change and keep the planet safe for future generations.
From the 1st to the 28th of November, Urgenda director Marjan Minnesma will walk more than 500 km from Utrecht to Paris, where the UN Climate Change Conference (COP21) will be held. Every day she will be joined by a special guest, who will leave behind a new Milestone with a message.
Anyone is free to join us, whether for a day, a week, or the entire month. While we walk, we’ll meet interesting people, visit inspiring initiatives, and cover approximately 20 kilometers per day.
Together, we will show the world that the time to act is now!
