Combine sustainable living, community building, theatre, leadership training and phenomenal bicycle touring!
Teams of a dozen or more motivated and energetic young people, aged 18 to 30, will set off on cycling and performing tours in 2010. You can be one of them! Tour members will share an incredible experience as they live as a mobile sustainable community. They will cycle from performance to performance, braving the elements, connecting with communities along the route, and exploring all the ups and downs of directly addressing environmental and social justice issues through their own every day actions. No bike touring or other experience is necessary, just a willingness to give it your all! Apply now – first come, first considered. Applications due by March 15, 2010.
May 3 to June 25: Ferocious Farm Tour (Ottawa to Toronto and back)
June 25 to October 20: Coast to Capital (Vancouver to Ottawa)
September 7 to November 2: Highlands and Islands (Fredericton to Halifax)
The Otesha Project is a youth-led, charitable organization that mobilizes and equips Canadians to create local and global change through individual and collective choices. The cycling and performing tour offers participants the chance to live in a mobile sustainable community while giving performances of The Otesha Play to high school students and community groups about how to make sustainability a part of everyday life.
Word of mouth is the most effective tool for recruiting cycling tour members. Tell your neighbors, tell your dentist, tell your school, friends and coworkers. Tell the World.
