Action week October 2018

1.- 12. of October

Our theme was: Fewer planes, more trains

There is a raising awareness of the need of climate friendly transportation. It is clear, that air traffic is destructive to the climate, and it is also clear that trains (at least in Europe) is a major answer to a transition. We have a good chance to mobilize and to reach the public and the press by making coordinated actions for trains and night trains during this period.

The Action week was taking place coordinated with the network “Stay Grounded”.
