Together, we did it!

30 Sep - 8 Nov, 2022

What an extraordinary journey to COP27 it has been! We said we would do this and on November 8th, as we crossed the finish line, we proved it was possible. We have passed this baton mile after mile, day and night, for 40 days. Thanks to the incredible collective effort of thousands of people, across 18 countries, we have covered the 7,767km from Glasgow to Sharm El-Sheikh. 

We ran, cycled, rowed, sailed, windsurfed and skied our way to Egypt. Through thunderstorms, hail, wind, snow, and desert heat. We never gave up. We kept moving forward. We kept working together. We've seen first-hand the endless human determination to show up and carry the baton for a cause we all believe in. We turned our words into action and we hope this baton, this symbol of hope, will be a reminder to world leaders that they must do the same.

Thank you to everyone who supported the Running Out of Time Relay.

Inside our relay baton was a message to the decision makers at COP27. A message created by young people, demanding quality climate education for all. So that people have the skills, knowledge and opportunities to build sustainable, climate resilient communities.
