What is the Day of Action?
350.org is calling on people around the world to organize an action on October 24 incorporating the number 350 at an iconic place in their community, and then upload a photo of their event to 350.org website.
They’ll collect these images from around the world and, with your help, deliver them to the media and world leaders. Together, we can show our world and it’s decision-makers just how big, beautiful, and unified the climate movement really is.
To help you take part in October 24’s international day of climate action, they are:
- Lifting public awareness on the need for an international climate treaty to reach 350.
- Assembling a coalition of hundreds of organizations committed to this vision of a more sustainable world.
- Connecting you with others in your community and across the planet who are building this movement.
- Providing on-line resources and tools that make pulling together an event easy.
- Linking your October 24 event with hundreds of other actions at iconic places around the world.
- Leveraging the day of action for meaningful political change.
And what does this 350 number even mean?
350 is the number that leading scientists say is the safe upper limit for carbon dioxide—measured in “Parts Per Million” in our atmosphere. 350 PPM—it’s the number humanity needs to get back to as soon as possible to avoid runaway climate change.
