Join an Otesha Cycle Tour in Summer 2008
The Otesha Project UK are looking to recruit young people aged 18-25 to take part in cycle tours in summer 2008, travelling the UK by bike while making a real difference in the world.
"If you want to actually do something that matters this summer, then come ride with us. Hop on your bike and become part of something big - roam around in a two-wheeled community, explore the UK, meet some good mates and make a real difference in the world. And hey, while you're at it, you'll also gain skills since tour members get trained in public speaking, facilitation, theatre, bike touring, bike maintenance, group living, media relations, consensus decision-making, and sustainable living. You've gotta admit, it feels pretty damn good to know that you're standing up, moving foward and taking charge of your own destiny. If you can get behind all this are are 18-25 years old, then get in touch and find out how to take part."
The first tour will start in June 2008 and the second will start mid-July. Over the course of six weeks, Otesha teams will travel around the UK in two-wheeled communities, sharing a unique brand of theatre, humour and DIY ethos. Tour members will get to demonstrate that living sustainably is as easy as reconsidering the simple choices that we all make from day to day. They'll also showcase the Otesha play, facilitate interactive workshops on specific issues like climate change or fair trade, and invite people to participate in hands-on sessions on bike repairs, do-it-yourself media and more.
