TWA's New Mantra: "De-Carbonise Your Life, De-Carbonise Dharamsala"
The event has been organised by the Tibetan Women's Association (TWA), as part of a local initiative to combat the carbon crisis threatening the planet.
The rally will include a mix of men, women and children of different nationalities, sporting T-shirts and badges reading Time for Climate Justice. Ten Buddhist nuns will flag off the cyclists at Mcleodganj's main square. The rally will then head to Bhagsu waterfall and finish at the temple of His Holiness the Dalai Lama.
The participants are promoting cycling as one means to reduce our carbon footprints. Bicycles do little to degrade the environment, and create no noise, odour, pollution or congestion.
7,081 events in 188 countries across the world have so far been planned for the Global Work Party. In Japan, sumo wrestlers will cycle to their wrestling practice in downtown Tokyo. In San Pedro Garza Garcia, Mexico, students will hand over solar-powered lights to families still recovering from the devastation of June's Hurricane Alex.
