Stage 7. Krakow - Katowice. Our message arrives to Katowice!!

More than 600 km behind us, tired legs, frozen bones … but the commitment remains intact or even stronger! After overcoming several hills in this last section and traveling through nature trails and urban areas, we have finally arrived in Katowice. A city with only 150 years of history, that is a precursor to a multitude of sustainable development initiatives.

Katowice is also the host city of the Climate Summit COP24; that will bring together the representatives of the countries of the United Nations Convention on Climate Change, to finalise key elements of the Paris Rulebook and address the outcomes of the Talanoa Dialogue to inform future climate action.

Here we have brought our Manifesto, surrounded by the warmth and support of all the people we have met along the way. The delivery of the text to Ovais Sarmad – the United Nations Climate Change Deputy Executive Secretary and Jakub Gibek – the Head of Climate Policy Unit of the Minister of the Environment of Poland, in which we promote joint and immediate action against climate change, has been charged with emotion. On our arrival we have been able to make several group photos that will always remind us of the pride we felt at the end of such an exciting journey.

Today we finish our route, but when we get home we will continue our work promoting climate action and sustainable behaviours, because the fight against global warming must involve governments and organisations, but also each one of us in our daily routine. Let’s get moving for climate together.

Let’s get Moving for Climate Now!!
