Bicycle Rally in Celebration of International Peace Day @ India Peace Centre

Bicycle Rally in Celebration of International Peace Day @ India Peace Centre

In celebration of “International day of peace”  on 21st of September, India Peace Centre is again hosting a bicycle rally. This years celebration focusses on the topic “climate action for peace”. At first peace and climate may seem like two different topics. But in order to live in a peaceful environment, caring for climate is substantial. 

 

That is why India Peace Centre wants to make a statement. Going everywhere by car or by bike ejects lots of CO2. CO2 is the main reason for global warming. Global warming causes natural catastrophes, such as forest fires, water shortage, the melting of the polar caps and poor harvest. Refugees and conflicts are the outcome. 

With the bicycle rally India Peace Centre and all the participants show a way of reducing their carbon footprint in order to provide peace. 

 

The rally starts at 6:30 am until 8:00 am. Start and finish will be at India Peace Centre. 

We would like you to join and celebrate together!
