Hi! My name’s Shannon. I’m walking from Melbourne to Canberra, to stand against the continued exploitation of fossil fuels and inaction on climate change within Australia. And I’d love your help! The walk will be low carbon, and community-powered, culminating in the delivery of the community’s messages to politicians in the capital.

Shannon is a young man who'd had enough with Australia's lack of action on climate change, and has made the decision to walk up to the counter to complain. And by counter, we mean the capital. And by walk, we mean walk. 700 kilometers.
