Our Judges say:

It's never entirely sure that they will make it. Great team work. I like how this film manages to be light and entertaining but at the same time have a significant physical challenge and a very important message about climate change.

Sustainability the active (chaotic and hungry) way

Claire Carter Writer, Film Officer for Kendal Mountain Festival, 'Creative Consultant'.

“We’re not doing this to send the message to everyone that cargo bikes will reverse climate change and make us all feel amazing. It’s much more complex than that. We know not everyone can afford a bike let alone a specialist one that can carry your kids and shopping. But the way we move around now isn’t fair. Our most deprived areas are the ones being worst affected by vehicle emissions, and on the other side of the world people are suffering the consequences of our excessive carbon production.” (Lee Craigie) The climate crisis presents the biggest existential threat that we have ever faced. Time is running out, but together we can resolve to race against the climate and ecological emergency. The Resolution Race Project is all about thinking differently, working as a collective and trusting one another as we lay the foundations for a more sustainable and equitable future for everyone.
