On 28 November, UIC coordinated on behalf of its Members the worldwide campaign “Train to Paris”.
The UIC “Train to Paris” team would like to pay tribute to all the actors of this project and would like to highlight the very powerful contribution of Members involved in this campaign during the one year preparation.
Saying that, the UIC team would like to warmly thank UIC Members and partners which contributed, through their action and coordination, to make this campaign a unique experience of cooperation and a unique opportunity to demonstrate that rail can be considered a solution to combat climate change.

Please find below some links illustrating some of these actions held on board several trains involved in the “Train to Paris” campaign:

On “Train to Paris” website, you will also find several interviews: http://traintoparis.org/interviews

Interviews were conducted on 28 November 2015 during the “Train to Paris” High Level Event organised by UIC with Yolaine de la Bigne, print and radio journalist (France Inter, RTL, France Info, Europe 1).

Author of several books, Yolaine de la Bigne was one of the first “urban-rural” journalists continuing to work in Paris, whilst still living in the French countryside. Already sensitised to nature through her collaborations with Nicolas Hulot for the Ushuaia issue, she became aware of the urgency to act and embarked on various actions to defend the environment.

She founded the Néoplanète website www.neoplanete.fr, and the first web-radio mixing music 24/7 and information on the defence of the planet.
