Stage 4. Olomouc- Ostrava. Broadening climate action: communication, awareness and partnerships

With this stage between Olomouc and Ostrava we have crossed the equator of the trip. In addition, with its 105 km, it has been the longest leg of the entire route and the cold has tested again our resistance as we left Olomouc at -7ºC. To compensate, the road today has gone through narrow and quiet paths, where the beauty of the natural environment has compensated the longer distance to our destination.

Today we had to cycle for 95km until our lunch stop and after a well-deserved rest, there was only a short way to arrive to Ostrava, the third largest city in the Czech Republic and capital of the Moravian-Silesian Region.

Here we had an interesting discussion on our fourth topic of debate: Broadening climate action: Awareness, communication and partnerships. Only collective, organised and solidarity action can be effective against climate change. And for this reason, a strategy that makes this message reach every corner of the planet is essential. For this it is important to create opportunities to promote dialogue such as the facilitative Talanoa dialogue.
