residencies

Join us at one of 10 Residency hubs at main cities along the route. Organising events at each of these stops is a major way of us advocating for climate justice this year as we #RiseToTheMoment.

This could be a case of teaming up with organisations locally to put on a whole series of events, getting key figures involved, using local media and publicity, and meeting with local politicians. If there isn't capacity, it will simply be a case of making sure the boat has somewhere to stay, being a point of contact, and organising a simple prayer vigil or other event. It's up to you to determine the scale.

    Coordinating volunteers to plan, support, and run any events in the Residency Hub

  • Residency Host

  • Local Celebration Guide

  • Making Actions Accessible

  • Boat Transport

    Residencies will be a focal point for celebrations to advocate for climate justice.

Planning Travels

tributaries

Tributaries are suggested additions to the main route. We welcome people arranging tributaries for parts of the country that aren't already covered by our route, although we cannot offer help to organise these. These routes can be walked/cycled/journeyed in other imaginative ways!

    A Guide to help you plan a tributary.
