Previous WCOC member Rosie Watson set out on the self-created 'New Story Run' in August 2019. The aim is to run from the UK to Mongolia, a 12,000km journey all by foot, carrying her stuff. Along the way she is telling the stories of people she meets who are tackling the climate crisis and related issues - and who are creating a more positive new story for humanity. In November 2019 Mike Elm started a twinned adventure by bike, the New Story Ride, inspired by the New Story Run. He is working on the same aims, but telling the stories through his bike-packing adventure, often visiting further away places that Rosie couldn't get to! A few weeks ago, they both made it to the Black Sea coast in Bulgaria. Unfortunately, due to Covid lockdowns, the next stage of their route is expected to be blocked until Spring 2021, so they have returned overland to the UK for a break - but will be back to continue as soon as they can. In this talk they will share some of their experiences so far, and answer any questions you have! You can also look at their websites to read about the stories they've been finding:
