 MARCHER IN THE HOME /Homestay program

The 35 to 50 marcher volunteers walking across country with the Great March for Climate Action will take two nights and one rest day. This is where local people will take one or more marchers home with them, give them a place to sleep, feed them supper and breakfast and pack a lunch for them. Its a really good opportunity for people to get to know marchers better and why they are marching.
