I will be biking through New England for the Better Future Project.

Climate Summer 2013 Dates: June 7th – August 16th, 2013

The Better Future Project is an organization that promotes communities to move beyond using fossil fuels. Climate Summer is a program through the Better Future Project where young adults ride exclusively by bicycle to various towns in New England.

In these towns we will try to make changes towards a cleaner world by educating and organizing events in each community. As a rider this summer I am very excited to have this unique opportunity to help people make more sustainable choices. For a long time I have been interested in the environment and specifically making the change from fossil fuels to renewable energy.

Would you be willing to donate to this cause? Your donation helps fund the movement this summer and helps people to make more sustainable choices. You can follow our progress this summer by going to climatesummer.net
