ECCI launches final leg of Pole to Paris marathon

19 October 2015

ECCI was chosen as the launchpad for the final leg of the marathon Pole to Paris campaign this weekend. 

POLE TO PARIS aims to raise awareness of COP21 by following two environmental scientists as they travel from the poles to Paris by bicycle in the South and foot in the North.

Edinburgh runners, alongside Pole to Paris campaigner Beth Ward, received the baton from a Norwegian representative and set off down the Cowgate, past the Scottish Parliament and onwards towards Paris.

ECCI is hosting a series events in the lead up to the Paris negotiations, linking with the University of Edinburgh's Action for the Climate initiative, to raise public awareness and create a platform for discussion.
