Travel Policy

We believe it is very important for everyone, particularly environmentalists, to minimise their carbon footprint, so all our activities take place within rail/boat/minibus distance of the UK. Our calculations suggest that our choice of transport produces approximately one quarter of the CO2 that would be produced if the participants all travelled by plane!

On our European visits, the travel time from the meeting place in the UK to the accommodation in our host country varies from 18hrs (La Brenne including the overnight ferry crossing) to about 24 hrs for Poland and the Czech Republic and just under 30 hrs for the visit to Aggtelek in Hungary.

Several of the outward journeys are by minibus stopping at campsites on the way, while longer journeys often involve overnight train journeys.
