2 Bicyclists Set To Ride From Saigon To Paris To Raise Awareness Of Climate Change

On Thursday February 12, Simon Nelson and Nguyen Thi Kim Ngan will set off on a bicycle ride from Saigon to the United Nations Climate Change Conference in Paris (COP21) in order to raise awareness of catastrophic climate change and to inspire people to take action to stop it.

The two riders will gather messages from the people they meet along the way urging the conference participants to take the action necessary to stop dramatic climate change.

The ride will take 9 months, pass through 11 countries and cover more than 15,000km. "Vietnam is one of the countries most vulnerable to climate change. Without strong action to stop global warming it faces a very bleak future. The conference in Paris is really the last change the world has to prevent unstoppable and catastrophic climate change. We hope that by highlighting the stories of people already suffering from the consequences of climate change we can inspire people both in Vietnam and around the world to take their own action to stop climate change and help ensure the conference agrees to take urgent action to prevent catastrophe. Kim Ngan said “It’s crucial time to take action to save the world before it’s too late,” said Nelson
