The Green Change Caravan is an experiment developed as a collaboration between Green Change and Tam Makers. We are forming a team of makers to design, build and show off a caravan of bicycles and trailers powered only by pedal and electric. We want to inspire people by showing how we can have fun doing this activity with a minimal carbon footprint. Once we have people’s attention, we will offer resources so people can learn how they can take steps to reduce their carbon footprint.
Our first trailer grabs attention by displaying a 6 ft. diameter Earth ball. Our next two trailers in development are an information kiosk and a portable maker workshop. The information kiosk will have visual displays and QR codes so people can learn about the actions that will help reduce our climate impact. The portable maker workshop will host enjoyable activities that will encourage people to hang out with us get involved in actions.
Later trailer additions to the Green Change Caravan may include a puppet or live theater, a food cart, a solar demonstration module and so forth.

Here is an interesting history. 20 Years ago, Sustainable Mill Valley used a bicycle trailer to promote sustainability at the City of Mill Valley’s centenial celebration. Here are is a slide show of that event.
This Year, Fabrice used the same bicycle trailer for Green Change to carry the 6 foot Earth Ball. Here is a picture.
