Welcome to the Working Wiki of the Ecotopia Biketour 2013!

The Wiki provides us with detailed and internal practical information. All past and future participants are invited to work in this wiki in order to facilitate the planning and co-ordination of our tour.

(nb: to edit the wiki, you need to login with your account. if you dont have one, you make it here)

This is not the website for general info on the biketour! If you want to get a first overview or read stories from past years, go to our primary website': [1]

!!!DATA REMINDER!!! This Wiki is a public space on the net. Be sensitive and responsible with the data you provide here. Think twice whether you, someone else or even groups/projects might have a problem (later) with information being posted here. Keep in mind that openness about information is a different thing from person to person and place to place and that unconscious handling of information can lead to problems later.

Basic Information

So what is the Ecotopia Biketour? Here are some useful pages from our website...:

Organizing Ecotopia Biketour

This is a self-organized tour!

No club, no NGO, no political party. Just some people following an idea - since 1990!

You are the biketour!

There is also two transnational coordinators working from Berlin during the months before the biketour. They don't take major decisions, but bear responsibility to keep the information together and its flows alive! - you can contact them and find out how you can help at

Some ideas of how you can help

There is lots to be done :) Here are smaller areas of the project, where u could be the right person to take responsibility:

  • coordinating a bit of the route (regional co-ordinators are wanted who speak the local language, can help find sleeping/cooking places, plan the route & find suitable maps for that region, have the overview of actions along the route. See more here: Checklist for national/local organisers)
  • take care of our outreach during the tour: flyer, poster, website content, prepare an action, prepare a theatre piece, prepare workshop to be given to the tour members or to the public
  • coordinate the outreach for participants and organizers
  • maintain the website
  • style/design leaflets, posters...
  • raise funds
  • take care about visas issues
  • help overall coordination
  • be the backup office when we are on tour
  • presswork - in your own country and international contacts
  • spread the word on the internet through using free software and uncommercial services as much as possible
  • Translate documents
  • Translate key texts to key-languages (e.g. German, and Eastern Europe in 2013) and other languages
  • The wiki pages need to be updated, cleaned out and ordered continuously!!!!!
