Time for a new challenge, something a little different in many many ways! Not a fitness challenge but very much an adventure! An adventure for us whilst raising money for a vital cause. A cause that touches all of us and our future. Cool Earth is the charity that works alongside indigenous villages putting local people back in control with the resources they need to keep their rainforest intact. They place the forest in the hands of the people who rely on its survival for their survival. Working alongside local people they build better health, better education and better livelihoods to create resilient and empowered vilages and lessening dependancy. Its not just the locals that benefit, climate change is a very real challenge that faces our world today and keeping rainforest standing is the simplest and cheapest way to mitigate climate change.
We’re partnering with three strategically located villages to halt the advance of the palm frontier from the east – shielding the pristine rainforest behind.
