Oct 24 Day of Action
350.org is an international campaign dedicated to building a movement to unite the world around solutions to the climate crisis--the solutions that science and justice demand. Our mission is to inspire the world to rise to the challenge of the climate crisis—to create a new sense of urgency and of possibility for our planet. Our focus is on the number 350--as in parts per million, the level scientists have identified as the safe upper limit for CO2 in our atmosphere. But 350 is more than a number--it's a symbol of where we need to head as a planet.
Check out this grassroots movement and do something on October 24th if you can. This song is inspirational too (to me at least).
Happy to hear your comments fellow earthlings...
You would be interested to know I am currently helping a recently arrived Somali family of refugees become confident on the computer so that they can send e mails and become computer literate to use the free services at our local library.
I knew you were on it sister Susan! And I was really happy to see how many of the 5000 actions in 180 countries were led by youth.
Hey SL - so nice of you to drop by.
Lindsay, that's wonderful! It must be quite rewarding for you and I know they appreciate it.
