About Do Nation

In 2009 Do Nation founder and CEO Hermione Taylor cycled from London to Morocco to see if she could inspire her friends and family to sponsor her, not with cash but with simple, sustainable actions.

It was popular and impactful. By doing things like cycling to work and eating less meat the trip saved CO2 emissions equivalent to 84 flights from London to Morocco. People also reported feeling fitter, happier and even saving money as a result!

But it was when Hermione saw the shifts in people’s attitudes that she knew she was really onto something powerful. Since then we’ve worked with 500 organisations across 100 countries, and nearly 60,000 people have pledged. Together our action community is saving 16,500 tonnes of carbon dioxide annually, which is over 42,500 flights from London to Morocco. And these figures are growing every day.

Pledges

Riders will be given their own Do Nation climate action page where they can ask friends, family, and colleagues to support them through action for climate and nature. All riders are asked to raise at least 20 pledges. No money, just action!
