Topics of the day: leaflets, sponsors, more networking
Today we found a jackpot-sponsor! He is giving Roti a tricycle for free and donating the first prize for our “Draw the bike of your dreams” competition – a bicycle! That really motivated me! Roti and I also went to a few other shops to ask if they could sponsor us and got a roll of fabric at one of them (thanks to Roti’s connection to the fashion business). We had a thousand “permis de conduite” printed to hand out to cyclists (and other motivated people) so they join our demonstration on Saturday.
Raphael worked on the poster for the competition and I wrote an e-mail to our renewables-motivated friends here to arrange a meeting between all of them and discuss the first steps that could be taken (like establishing a limited liability operating company) to start a public participation solar farm or wind park – we feel this is a very important thing to do before we leave to get a grassroots-movement started (instead of waiting for politicians to get going).
Final thoughts of the day: The time goes by so fast and at the end of the day I can’t recall where it all went…
I’m really happy that we found a sponsor 🙂
