Ride for the Planet

In 2015, EPCO organised a bicycle rally campaign which was entitled ‘Ride for the Planet’. This event was inspired by Global Power Shift (http://globalpowershift.org/) where one of the member of EPCO got the opportunity to participate in the Global Power Shift Conference organized by 350.org held in Istanbul, Turkey in June 2013 (https://peacerevolution.net/wall/topic-99992015/global-power-shift-24-30-june-2013-istanbul-turkey-500-climate-leaders#/)

This event was organised with the collaboration with the Ministry of Youth Empowerment, Sports & Recreation and the Ministry of Environment, Solid Waste Management & Climate Change. Around 100 participants were involved. The goal of this campaign was to promote the use of recycle materials and also to reduce our carbon impact on the Environment. The participants were given recycled material to decorate their bicycle with clear messages on how to adapt to climate change.
