Move for Earth (M4E) is a movement that aims to inspire climate action by cycling across India and addressing local water, soil and energy issues.
The cyclists include various stakeholders from civil society, NGOs, farmers, students, influencers and anyone who wants to join the cause.
Along the way, they will stop at different locations to conduct trainings, dialogues and celebrations with the public.
Strategic media moments, meaningful video and photo opportunities, and newsworthy elements will be woven into the journey, so as to optimise interaction and maximise reach.
Instead of focusing on the negative aspects of climate change, we want to highlight the positive benefits of taking climate action. We all have the opportunity to create a better future for ourselves and our planet, by choosing solutions that are smart, sustainable, and innovative.
Renewable energy, clean water, and sustainable agriculture are not just ways to save a dying planet, but ways to enhance our quality of life, health, and prosperity.
Our strategy is to empower people with the skills they need to thrive in a future powered by renewable energy, clean water, and sustainable agriculture. We aim to improve the livelihood and health of our communities through heartfelt action.
