Ali Abdo’s Electric Journey from COP27 to COP28: A Guinness Record-Breaking Ride that Sparks Global Climate Action and Emphasizes Youth’s Role in Sustainability
Cairo, Egypt Feb 1, 2024 (Issuewire.com) – In an exceptional blend of environmental dedication and groundbreaking achievement, Ali Abdo has set a new Guinness World Record for the Most Cities Visited in a Continuous Journey by an Electric Motorcycle. Beginning his monumental journey at the Great Pyramids of Giza on October 1, 2023, and concluding at the significant COP28 climate change conference in Expo City on November 27, 2023, marking his fourth Guinness World Record on an electric vehicle, embodying a significant advancement in environmental advocacy.
Under the banner of “The Ride To 2030,” an initiative recognized by COP28 as one of the world’s most crucial climate actions, Abdo’s mission is to propel global communities towards enhanced sustainability efforts. His city expedition across Egypt, Jordan, Saudi Arabia, and Qatar on the Energica EVA EsseEsse9 opens a new chapter in environmental activism. More than a mere journey, it served as a platform for widespread education, engagement, and inspiration, bringing the vital issue of climate change to a diverse array of communities through visits to schools, universities, and sports clubs in each city.
Adding to his list of achievements, including the greatest distance on an electric motorcycle in 24 hours and the longest journey on an electric motorcycle, which he achieved during his ride to COP27, Abdo’s latest Ride To COP28 highlights the powerful impact individual actions can have on the global environmental stage.
As world leaders gathered at the COP28 conference to discuss our planet’s future, crossing Arab countries on an electric motorcycle emerged as a powerful symbol of practical, accessible climate action. His presence underscored the role of youth in climate action and the importance of green technology in our everyday lives, steering the public’s attention toward a sustainable future.
Ali Abdo said, “This journey is not just about breaking Guinness World Records; it’s a testament to what we can achieve for our planet when we unite. Each mile traveled and each city visited was a step towards demonstrating that sustainable living is not a distant dream, but a viable reality. It’s more than a journey; it’s a movement, inviting everyone to join in creating a future where sustainability is the norm, not the exception.” He stated that building on the great results and success of the ride to COP27 and the ride to COP28, he is preparing for COP29, a ride on an electric motorcycle from Dubai to Azerbaijan for COP29.
This initiative is a collaboration with UNICEF, UNDP, the COP27 presidency, the League of Arab States, the Ministry of Youth & Sports of Egypt, the Egyptian Ministry of Environment, the Earth’s Climate for Sustainable Development Foundation, The Automobile and Touring Club of Egypt, Rotormobility, the Egyptian Holding Company For Water & Waste Water, Drive Terra, and Sigma Fit. United, they advocate for climate action in the MEA region, encouraging meaningful conversations, and leading the charge towards innovative solutions for sustainable progress.
