What is it?

Four climate activists from Cornwall, Devon and Somerset are cycling to Paris to deliver the Climate Vision report to delegates to the COP21 United Nations Climate Talks at the beginning of December. In 2009 Truro Cathedral coordinated individual actions and pledges across Cornwall under the banner “Footsteps to Copenhagen” and delivered the pledges to the COP15 talks in a Cornish Pilot Gig. Five years on governmental action is still sadly lacking and scientists are clearly talking about a climate emergency. Meanwhile in Cornwall, Climate Vision followed up the 2009 Pledges and demonstrated that these individual actions had made very significant carbon savings at extremely low cost. The report detailing the results and showing that citizens can play an active role in transforming the world is being delivered to representatives in Paris for COP21 by low carbon transport – a team of cyclists.
