My story

[p]Paris is hosting the UN climate change talks this year and Wendy, the CEO of The Converging World is cycling 240 miles over four days in the bitter winter cold to attend the event.[/p] [p]She’s raising money for an inspiring project that is contributing to the reforestation of an area of Southern India near Pondicherry. It had been severely deforested for its valuable wood by early colonists, leaving behind a severely eroded landscape, with diminished watershed and soil, completely unable to support life. [/p] [p]For the last 40 years a team in Auroville have been working to restore this landscape with some inspiring results. They have turned the dusty barren land into a vibrant forest of trees and shrubs and re-introduced native fauna. They have also created a nursery and ethno-medicinal garden to support local livelihoods and healthy communities. [/p][p]Not to mention the fact that all the trees contribute to taking carbon out of the atmosphere! [/p][p]The work is inspiring but ongoing and the project is raising funds to continue the amazing effort.[/p][p]To support Wendy and also raise money for the reforestation project, I’ll be part of a relay team at The Converging World that will be covering the 240-mile distance in one day! It's going to be tough going so...[/p] [p][b]...Please will you sponsor me and all money will go to reforestation. For every £1 we can plant another tree.[/b][/p][p][b][lt]br /[gt][/b][/p] [p][lt]img src="http://www.theconvergingworld.org/sites/theconvergingworld.org/files/imagefield_default_images/before_after_photos_0.png" alt="" width="500" height="224" /[gt][/p] [p][/p]
