We’re Pedalling on COP26 for the Global Day of Action on November 6th
We couldn’t pedal on Parliament this year — but we can take our cycles and climate message to the assembled world leaders in Glasgow. The UN Climate Conference is the world’s last best chance to avert a climate catastrophe and we’re joining with other groups for the Global Day of Action for Climate Justice on November 6th.
Here’s how you can get involved:
- Join our bloc (Cycling and Sustainable Transport) at the big march from Kelvingrove Park to Glasgow Green – you can sign up here.
- If you’re in Glasgow, join one of our feeder rides from various corners of the city organised by OnBikes, Friends of Bearsway, Glasgow Southside Women’s Road Cycling, Cycling UK Glasgow and more.
- If you’re in Edinburgh or along the route, join the mass demo ride from Edinburgh on the day, jointly organised with Critical Mass Edinburgh (you can sign up here). There’s also an option for a quicker paced ride to be sure you’ll get to the march in time for the start (the Critical Mass ride is a demo in its own right).
- If you’re further afield, you could Pedal on COP from your town or city – we’ve got feeder rides in the works from all corners of Scotland (coming by bus or train is fine too!)
- If you can’t make it to Glasgow for that day, join in local demonstrations or organise your own – you can find a map of local actions here.
Let us know if you want to get involved – email firstname.lastname@example.org, or get in touch via our various social media channels.
- If you can’t make it in person (or even f you can, there’s lots more you can do to spread the word:
- Help us spread the word – follow us on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram
- Share our news posts – or just get out there and talk to other people the old fashioned way.
- Watch and share our film, the Time Is Now.
- Donate – most of our running costs come from donations and sales of merchandise. If you can help it will make us very happy campaigners!
- Contact your politicians and ask that they improve their pledges on active travel and particularly in the context of climate change.
