Hi! I'm Eve, founder of Buzz Tour
For the last two years I have been learning about action that people are taking on climate change. After giving up my job I traveled and learned to do things differently. It was the first time in my life I had the time to really step back and think for myself. What became very clear to me was that the causes of climate change are cultural and systemic. Now is the time. There is no more time to wait. Our species has achieved wonders over thousands of years, but if we wish to preserve our continued existence on Earth we must change our behaviour within the next 15 years.
The Buzz Tour is all about making connections and pollinating change. Every person has their own path and contribution to a positive future and we celebrate that. We will walk to inspiring people and projects all over the country and take the inspiration, wisdom and skills with us. We'll also share it on buzztour.org. With support we'll be able to feed ourselves, pay for emergencies, use video equipment to record the fabulous people and get kitted out for the walk. We'll visit a huge range of groups including schools, permaculture farms, Transition projects, community elders, and people taking direct action. Help us! Join us!
What We Need & What You GetMoney would help but any donations in kind would be great! We would much rather borrow the things we need than buy them. The more help we get the more people on low/no income can join us.

- Be inspired and get connected! By joining us as a supporter you will be part of a network of people who want to make this world better and be more than they are. We will have a supporters meetup to help people forge those links in person.
The impact on anyone who joins us is likely to be life changing, it is no small thing to leave day to day life behind and walk your country to learn the wisdom of your people. For those who can't walk with us, we want to share what we discover and learn with you, which is why we'll be capturing as much great stuff as we can by video, audio and photo. We want to come to you! We want to walk to people all over the country and bring them news of the inspiring things their people are doing. Showing that other ways are possible can change the course of your life. It certainly did for me. We are a great country, but leaving a habitable planet for our descendants will be the greatest thing we can do.
