Team Greenpeace hit gold over the Olympic road race cycling weekend in Dorking with our 'Save the Arctic' street campaign.
As the Olympic spirit hit Surrey, Reigate Greenpeace group, together with friends from the Berkshire and Runnymede groups, took our 'Save the Arctic' campaign to the Meadowbank Park festival which was organised by Mole Valley Council to celebrate the cycling events.
Pablo the polar bear, a life-size sculpture made from rubbish recovered from London's rivers, attracted plenty of people to our stall at the festival, and our walk-abouts dressed in a polar bear costume proved very popular with families and children, attracting dozens of people to sign up as Arctic Defenders and pledge their support for declaring the Arctic a World Park.
As part of the campaign we're asking people to put their names to the Greenpeace Arctic Scroll – a list of a million people committed to protecting the Arctic. If you would like to add your name to the list just send a free text to 60002 with the word ARCTIC and your name.
Congratulations and thanks to Neil and all at Reigate Greenpeace for their hard work in organising such a successful weekend.
