This Saturday, people around the world will gather at more than 4000 events in 89 countries to demand serious action on global warming.
These events, timed to influence the global climate negotiations in Copenhagen this December, will call on world leaders to pay attention to the science and commit to real climate solutions.
The idea of a truly global action for climate solutions seemed crazy at first, but now it's becoming a reality. There will even be events in Afghanistan and Iraq.
Now, by joining actions in our own communities, MoveOn members can help make the event even bigger. Click below to find an event near you:
The global day of action will focus on the need to stabilize concentrations of carbon dioxide at the levels scientists say is safe—350 parts per million.
The number 350 has become a shorthand for the kind of strong, science-based climate treaty that we need.
On October 24th, at each event—some large rallies, others small gatherings in people's homes—a photo will be taken centered around the number 350. The photos from around the world will be broadcast to the world's media on giant screens in New York's Times Square and delivered to hundreds of world leaders in the coming weeks.
Gathering to pose for a 350 photograph might seem like a small action—but when it's being done thousands of times in thousands of cities, it grows in force, showing global leaders the massive, vibrant groundswell of worldwide citizens demanding solutions on climate change.
Our friends at 350.org have taken the lead in organizing the day of action. Let's help make this huge. Find a local event and sign up to attend:
