Journeys needing support

People from the Asia Pacific are participating in some fantastic Journeys around Climate Change.

JCJ is delighted, and keen to support the organisers where we can.

JCJ is working towards linking people in the countries involved. Our dream would be for individuals from one country in the Asia Pacific to take part in other Journeys, as a step towards grassroots collaboration across the whole region. Want to help make this a reality? Get in touch.

Another bike journey is happening in Sri Lanka. This time it is initiated by United Nations Volunteers. The great news is that ECO-V (Eco-Friendly Volunteers) are now participating as well as giving advice. ECO-V ran the 2011 and 2013 Journeys, and their convenor Kanchana Weerakoon is vice-president of JCJ.

Pacific Warriors from 13 nations, threatened by rising seas, brought their canoes to Australia in late October. On Friday 17th October, they blockaded Newcastle Harbour, the largest coal terminal in the world. There were supporting events in cities around Australia. Find out about their next Journey and support them.

The Climate Caravan will roll through Bangladesh, India and Nepal from 10th to the 28th of November. It includes participants from the sub-continent, Australia and elsewhere. Find out more and support them.
