Cycling against Landmines - From Lake Geneva to The Dead Sea - From Lake Geneva to The Dead Sea, Armin Köhli's New Cycling Challenge

4800 Km by Bike across 13 Countries

The double amputee and exceptional cyclist
Armin Köhli takes on the challenge of a 4800 km
bike tour across Europe and the Middle East.

He will leave from Geneva at the beginning
of October and arrive in Jordan on November 18th,
where the 8th Meeting of State Parties to the Ottawa
Convention against land mines is due to take place.

By accomplishing this feat, Armin Köhli hopes
to raise public and media awareness of the fight
against the scourge of land mines, which causes
15'000 victims every year worldwide, including
a great many children. To this end, events are being
planned along the course to allow Armin Köhli to meet
young people, mine victims and political and media
representatives in different countries.

The project is timed to coincide with the 10th anniversary of the Ottawa Treaty banning the use, production and transfer of landmines.

Rules of war (in a nutshell) Since the beginning, humans have resorted to violence as a way to settle disagreements. Yet through the ages, people from around the world have tried to limit the brutality of war. It was this humanitarian spirit that led to the First Geneva Convention of 1864, and to the birth of modern International Humanitarian Law. Setting the basic limits on how wars can be fought, these universal laws of war protect those not fighting, as well as those no longer able to. To do this, a distinction must always be made between who or what may be attacked, and who or what must be spared and protected.
