KEEN Inc. — a leader in hybrid outdoor performance products, including footwear, socks and bags — is pleased to announce their sponsorship of UNEP climate change hero, Roz Savage and award-winning global cooling consultant, Allison Gannett in their latest effort to draw attention to climate change.

Savage and Gannett, along with four other women, are walking 250 miles to Brussels, where they will join the United Nations Climate Express train to the UN Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen this month. During their low carbon journey, they will gather signatures on inflatable “Earth” balls, to be delivered to the conference as a petition calling on the delegates to take decisive action on climate change.

Savage will be recording her experience on rozsavage.com/blog with exclusive posts on the KEEN blog. In addition, the walk will be the subject of a documentary film, “The Long Walk to Copenhagen”, to illustrate the way people are responding to the climate change challenge.
