Got plans for Saturday, Oct. 24? Join up with climate-concerned citizens around the globe for the first-ever International Day of Climate Action, to demand that world leaders get moving in the fight against climate change.
More than 3,000 events in 170 countries are in the works, many of them focused on the number 350, which represents the safe upper limit for CO2 in our atmosphere (we’ve already surpassed it — d’oh).
Find an action near you, or organize one yourself. Anything goes! Events will include everything from major rallies at iconic spots like the Taj Mahal and Machu Picchu, to underwater scuba-assisted protests, to mountain climbers hanging “350” banners and churches ringing their bells 350 times. Don’t miss out. “It’s shaping up to be to be the biggest day of grassroots action on global warming ever,” according to Bill McKibben and the other organizers at 350.org.
