  • Train to Copenhagen

The travel team, composed of a UIC environment Senior Advisor, UNEP and WWF representatives, arrived yesterday in Kyoto. They are picking up the message signed at the Kyoto Seminar on 6 November by the railways and will bring it to Copenhagen via a symbolic train journey.

They are blogging on their experiences on the Train to Copenhagen website everyday (www.traintocopenhagen.org) and you can already read the first articles online, and discover pictures and videos.

After Kyoto, the team will travel to Vladivostok to take the Trans-Siberian. The Russian Railways are providing a special VIP-wagon to carry the experts bringing the message. These latter will arrive in Moscow on 1st December, and join Berlin before going to Brussels, where the Climate Express will leave to Copenhagen on 5th December.

News is also available on Facebook and Twitter (Trn2Cpnhgn)! Keep track of the Train to Copenhagen.
