International Day of Climate Action
Staging the world's largest grassroots "open-source" campaign, 350.org calls on the world to organize actions incorporating the number 350 in order to emphasize its importance to our survival.
350 parts per million is the safe upper limit for CO2 in our atmosphere. This number is currently at 390 ppm, meaning that drastic action is necessary in order to avoid major climate change. World leaders will be meeting in Copenhagen this December to discuss a new climate treaty that currently is too weak to affect the amount of change the world needs.
350.org invites everyone to create an action using the number 350 that will help get the world's attention and influence the upcoming leaders meeting. Planned actions include everything from giant banners displaying the number to church bells ringing 350 times to 350 trees being planted 10 times over. The site lists suggestions for people of all walks of life and provides the tools to create an action of their own.
