I'm walking from London to Glasgow in time for COP26, a solo walk of 690km, and I would be very inspired by your support!

Why? In 2016, I walked 1000km for a charity campaign and the action helped to raise awareness. And there's something quite unique about long distance walking. You don't really recover from the experience. The lessons I learned inspired my debut novel "The Journey of Water" (davieswriter.com).

The gravity of the climate crisis inspired this trek, and I love how the DoNation platform is not about fund raising, but all about taking individual action and spreading awareness.

Fossil fuel emissions must be cut much faster, and COP26 is a critical opportunity to lay down the gauntlet. Public pressure needs to build so that governments make big enough changes in time. It is governments who set the action plan, and create the regulations, the constraints and enabling conditions in the market. In the run up to COP, it's governments that need to see that the public care deeply about treating this crisis for the great emergency that it is.

Please take a pledge! and share this campaign with a friend. It doesn't cost any money. It's a joy to be part of the solution to our climate emergency, and, the example we set to the people around us is more powerful than we might think.

Please click the pledge button below. It takes no time. Pick from one of the top Do Actions below, or browse more by clicking the ‘pledge’ button above. No need to limit it to one - do as many as you dare!

Some are easy; others take a bit more effort, but every one helps. And remember - you only have to try it for two months.

A huge warm thank you!! for supporting this campaign.

Every good wish!

Katherine
