A Climate Movement
— From Arctic to Paris

There are times when we must accept small steps forward—and there are other times when you need to run like a buffalo. Now is the time to run.

- Henry Red Cloud, Lakota educator

Run for your life is a relay race across Northern Europe to promote climate justice and a sustainable future.

You can’t run to Paris by yourself, but together we can - and we did.

We started in the Arctic region and ended in Paris at the climate conference COP21. The race covered over 4000 kilometres and lasted for about 20 days, involving thousands of people. Every participant with their own story and their personal reasons for running in this race. Local events were organised all along the route the relay took.
