SUBJECT: Ecotopia Biketour Call out for Contacts, Hosts and Projects: we want you!?

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>Please also pass this email on to the projects that you recommend! Hello from Ecotopia Biketour!


We found you through a contact or recommendation, or from the world wide web! We now have you on a list of projects to contact, as we gather more information for this summers Ecotopia Biketour 2013: Beyond Borders! - so we are looking at issues ranging from global economic inequality; global justice; immigration; the commons; anti-capitalism; basic income; solidarity; but also general Biketour themes such as environmentalist; ecology and de-growth. Some of these themes are beginning to be discussed on our blog.

We are also as a sub theme looking into freedom on the net - and trying to move towards more Free Libre and Open Source software - to read more about this you can see our Lets Get FLOSS'y page and sub campaigns page.


If you have never heard of us: please go to www.ecotopiabiketour.net Now: What do we want from you? **WE WOULD (MAYBE) LIKE TO VISIT YOUR PROJECT THIS SUMMER!**


We have to say "maybe" because our route will develop according to who else is willing to host us and other factors (such as distances, topography etc.). So, first of all, we would like to know:


1) Would you generally like to host Ecotopia Biketour this summer?

What this could mean: We visit you with our mobile activist troop of 15 - 30 people

   to learn more about your project – maybe through a tour, a discussion, a skills share workshop
   to take part in an action with your cause / project – a critical mass, a creative demonstration or intervention...
   to help towards your project – we are many hands! - we could help with practical hands on stuff – building projects, clearing spaces, gardening, food preparation, event planning, facilitation, bike workshops..
   to promote your project or campaign through our online networks, website, mailing list, social media – and along the tour - if you want us to - or writing press releases, making a short video, designing a flyer...
   to invite you to join us on our biketour!

We would also like to know:

2) When would be the best time (dates) for you to host us? When would it be completely impossible? 3) Is it o.k. to mention your project on our website and public route description? 4) Are there other projects you would recommend us visiting, in your area / country or in south / eastern Europe? 5) Is your project part of or close to an interesting route, trail or has 'border' related significance

6) Anything else that could be useful for us?

We have quite some ideas about places and events to visit already, which can be found on our Route Page - your project may already be included ;) - if not let us know. We cannot possibly visit everyone on this page -but are making a selection based on what we get in response from this email!!!!

And finally - if you, or someone you know could help us with translating our website and printed material - please ask them to get in touch and join our translation bank.

Thanks for now! Dzekuje, dakujem, kösönöm, danke, hvala & multumesc!
