Organizing 2010 ecotopia biketour
This is a self-organized tour!
No club, no ngo, no political party. Just some people following an idea - since 1990!
In 2010 we are planning to start in the UK at the end of June, go to the Towards Carfree Cities Conference, then onto the Camp Action Climat in France at the end of July, and finally through Belgium, the Netherlands & Germany in August.
We are searching for people who want to join BT 2010 and take part in its organisation - see organise BT 2010 how far we got already and where u can help!
Check also our BT 2010 advertising material
IMPORTANT What we really need at the moment are following persons:
- 1 co-ordinator in Germany (BT will be there only 2 days cycling, 8 days in total between the border & Cologne)
- 1 co-ordinator in the Netherlands (BT will be there 1-2 days in Limburg)
- 1-2 co-ordinator(s) in Flanders [Belgium] (BT will be there for about 9 days)
Regional/National 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: http://btwiki.ecobytes.net/Checklist_for_national/local_organisers
we have quite a lot of job opportunities :) smaller areas of the project, where u would be the right person to take responsibility:
- coordinating a bit of the route
- take care of our outreach during the tour: flyer, poster, website content, prepare an action, prepare a theater piece, prepare actions, prepare workshop to be given to the tour members or to the public
- coordinate the outreach for participants and organizers
- maintain the website
- style/desing the website, leaflets, posters...
- raise funds
- take care about visa
- overall coordination – done at the moment by laura and jan – are u interested ?
- backup office
- bring bt to social networks like facebook and keep it updated there
- You can help us on-line!!! We do need help with moving pages from our old wikis and websites - have a look down to archive - to this wiki. Also the website needs editing.
- Wiki organization
- Take care of moving old texts to here
- You can learn on How to edit Wiki for contributing

Last years' tours
We went through England, Wales, France, Belgium, Netherlands & Germany, and found it was very possible to live with little money even in the "expensive" countries.
