Welcome to Croatia!

This year, Croatia will be part of an incredible relay race from Scotland to Egypt to convey the message of climate change to decision makers at COP 27. The impact of climate change on our planet will be felt most by young people and future generations. The message from Croatian children and youth will be conveyed by the Eco-Schools students from Bregana to Slavonski Brod! Join us!

Ove godine Hrvatska će biti dio nevjerojatne štafetne utrke od Škotske do Egipta kojom će mladi diljem svijeta prenijeti poruku o klimatskim promjenama donositeljima odluka na COP 27. Utjecaj klimatskih promjena na naš planet najviše će osjetiti mladi i buduće generacije. Poruku hrvatske djece i mladih prenijet će polaznici Ekoškola od Bregane do Slavonskog Broda! Pridružite nam se!

Stage #448

Forests - the lungs of our planet

The aim of the project is to acquire knowledge about the importance of forests for humans, animals and plants, the impact of human activities on the forest.

Forests are home to many plants and animals and the lungs of the world. Visiting the woods through all seasons, children experienced the beauty of nature and explored all their senses.

They gained knowledge about the forest, how we protect it and how it affects climate. The children took part in the action "Plant a tree, don't be a stump!", visited the Diverterra Multimedia Educational Exhibition "Animals talk to children about climate change”, Lonjsko Polje Nature Park and the Regional Park Moslavačka gora.

Croatian: Cilj projekta je stjecanje znanja o važnosti šuma za život ljudi, životinja i biljaka, utjecaju ljudskih aktivnosti te međusobnoj povezanosti i ovisnosti. Šume su dom mnogih biljaka i životinja te pluća svijeta. Boraveći u šumi kroz sva godišnja doba, djeca su doživjela ljepotu prirode i istraživala osjetilima. Stekla su znanja o šumskoj zajednici, kako ju čuvamo te kako ona utječe na klimu. Djeca su sudjelovala u akciji „Zasadi stablo, ne budi panj!“ Ekološke udruge Zelena Moslavina, posjetila su Multimedijalnu-edukativnu izložbu Diverterra „Životinje djeci pričaju o klimatskim promjenama“, Park prirode Lonjsko polje te Regionalni park Moslavačka gora.

What is Running Out of Time?

Running Out of Time is a 7,767km non-stop relay from Glasgow, Scotland (Host of COP26) to Sharm El-Sheikh, Egypt (Host of COP27). There are a total of 732 stages, with each stage being around 10km long. The relay runs day and night for 40 days and travels to 18 countries.

Within the relay baton is a climate change message from young people to the decision makers at COP27.

Our goal is for the relay baton to be passed from person-to-person and arrive in Egypt. Most stages will be run and a small number will be cycled. We’ll be sailing The Channel and The Mediterranean.

When is it?

The relay starts in Glasgow on Friday 30th September and will finish in Sharm El-Sheikh on Tuesday 8th November.

Who can take part?

You must be over the age of 18 to sign-up to our relay and be able maintain an average pace of 6 minutes 15 seconds per kilometre / 10 minutes per mile for the duration of a stage.

If you are under the age of 18 and would like to run a stage, then please ask your parent/legal guardian to contact us at [email protected] and we will see if this can be accommodated.

We also have a Schools Action Day taking place on November 3rd, which is open to schools around the world, and a Virtual Relay Day on November 5th.

Why are you doing this?

The impact of climate change on our planet will be felt most by our youth and future generations. Their collective voice needs to be heard. Together, we aim to deliver their message, held within the relay baton, with so much support that it is impossible to ignore.

Along the extraordinary route, the baton will cross seas, mountain ranges, glaciers, and deserts and visit schools, at-risk locations and climate change projects meeting scientists, engineers and designers at the forefront of the green revolution to better understand what is happening to our planet and to inspire local climate action.

Will the relay run to time?

It is the joint responsibility of all runners to keep the relay running to time. Please do everything in your power to prevent delays. We’re all relying on you!
