One of social foundations identified in the heart of Doughnut Economics is political voice. These are are internationally agreed principles as part of the global Sustainable Development Goals agreed in 2015. On the eve of COP26, arguably the most urgent global climate summits of our lifetimes, the importance of raising our voices, holding governments to account, and rising up as people, is more important than ever. We invite you to participate in banner making from 10:30am before we leave for our ride. We will be leaving from The Floating Front Room at 11:45am to head to the COP26 Protest.
For anyone who would like to head back with us we will stay at the protest for an hour and then lead the ride back to South Loop Park. This is optional; you are welcome to stay at the protest and make your own way back.
