Going to The Wave – help with Travel

05/11/2009

the-wave

Please Note:  All organised coaches (that we are aware of) are now full.  If you are going tomorrow – safe journey.

The Wave

On December 5th people from around the country are descending on London to express;

– Their commitment to take action on climate change

– To call on our Government and world leaders to come together at Copenhagen and make the necessary commitments with the necessary finances.

– To illustrate our anxiety over the consequences of Climate Change if we do not act now!

For more information on the Wave, please visit http://www.stopclimatechaos.org/the-wave to find out the itinerary for the day, why they are asking everyone to wear blue and all other such information.

If you are interested in the service preceeding The Wave march, then information can be found here.

If you are thinking of coming to The Wave, but are worried that you may not know anyone else – then why not let us know – we may be able to help introduce to others who are going. If you are in this situation then booking onto one of the coaches will help you meet new people.

On Nov 17th (6pm and the BMI – Margaret St, Birmingham) at the Sustainability Forum, celebrating the work of faith communities, we will have a stall for The Wave so do please stop by the stall and we’ll try and answer your queries.
