The international campaign 350.org is coordinating a day of action on October 24, 2009.
Leading scientists agree that 350 parts per million (ppm) is the absolute maximum safe amount of CO2 in our atmosphere. According to the NOAA, we’ve reached almost 390 already this year. 350.org is an international campaign dedicated to raising awareness about this pressing issue and working towards an international agreement to get us back on track.
Now, they’re organizing a day of of international climate action to spread the word and support “real climate solutions.” You can check out their video and learn about how to get involved right here:
To find an action near you, just head over to 350.org.
If you’re interested in planning your own action, they have some suggestions for events you can put together. Once you’ve got the details squared away, don’t forget to register your action on the site! Here are just a few of their ideas:
- In coastal areas, line up to show the tide line that a rise in sea level would bring on.
- A feast or pot luck featuring local foods.
- Biking action – sort of like a march or rally, but on bikes. Think Critical Mass.
- Make an art installation!
You can see more ideas and get additional information on their website.
