Climate Solutions Road Tour, held between January 2 and February 4, 2009, was a project initiated by the Indian Youth Climate Network which started off at Chennai,[1] India. Traveling to more than 15 Indian cities, a group of ten members of the Indian Youth Climate Network and a solar-powered band "Solar Punch" covered more than 3,500 kilometers in solar-powered and plug-in electric cars REVA,[citation needed] solar punch buggy and an alternative-fueled truck.

The road tour was one of the first initiatives towards showcasing clean technology, empowering youth via leadership-training programs, and using art, dance and music by Solar Punch and other local musicians and artists to communicate the message in as many ways as possible.[2] The objective of the tour had been defined "to document a trail across the nation of climate solutions and empower youth along the route to create, communicate and celebrate their own solutions."

The road tour which began in Chennai on January 2, 2009 covered 15 major cities including Bangalore,[3] Hyderabad, Pune, Mumbai, Ahmedabad, Jaipur, Delhi, Udaipur, Delhi, Dungarpur, Tilonia, and Goa. The tour successfully ended on 5 February at Delhi.[4]
