This is climate action with IMPACT by the Running out of Time team.
The first of several thousand runners set off from Glasgow (COP26 host city) on the 30th of September in a record-breaking relay to pass a baton for 7,767km through 18 countries.
The baton contained a climate message from young people to world leaders and key decision makers at COP27 in Egypt. They were asking for a climate education relevant to their changing world.
The Baton Message
We are Running Out of Time.
Quality climate education is critical if we are to equip people of all ages and in all places with the knowledge and skills necessary to build a future in which all can thrive.
Young people need to be recognised as leaders, placed at the forefront of the conversation about climate change and empowered through education.
We are calling on the world’s leaders to provide us with the skills and training to build a sustainable world.
Our world is warming and to keep the increase to 1.5 degrees we need forward thinking, consistent policies and funding to help us reach Net Zero Emissions.
We are committed to help build a future that is inclusive and sustainable for all.
Show by your actions, not just words, that you are too.
Help us get there!
