A 7500 km journey on a solar-powered bicycle: show solidarity with their efforts

Our two colleagues, Celine and John, in a little less than four weeks have already travelled almost 2500 km of their 7,500 km-long journey on solar-electric bike, where they plan to cycle from Geneva to Astana (Kazakhstan) via Sochi (in Russia, a mandatory stop). With their efforts they want to promote solar and eco-mobility, particularly travel by "solar powered" bike.

To add a touch of solidarity to their sportive and human experience, Celine and John asked us to organize an action in the framework of the Long-Term Collections. It is with pleasure that the Staff Association has accepted their proposal. Therefore, we offer you the opportunity to subscribe to a humanitarian initiative where you agree to pay a sum of 10 CHF for countries crossed by Celine and John, with a minimum commitment of 30 CHF and a maximum of 100 CHF. Indeed, their scheduled trip includes crossing ten countries in Europe and Asia.

Position of Céline and Jean on Friday 12th of July

Today they are in Ukraine, after crossing parts of Switzerland, France, Italy, Slovenia, Hungary, Romania and Moldova. If you want to show your solidarity and participate in this action, please register on the web site https://staff-association.web.cern.ch/content/soutien-celine-jean. You will then receive in early September 2013, a payment slip that will allow you to pay the amount of your choice into the account of the Long-Term Collections.
