Day of Global Action, October 24, 2009
Madagascar, the 100th and most recent registrant for the 350 International Day of Action on Climate Change on October 24, 2009, is a symbol of hope for climate crusaders around the globe. When Bill McKibben, founder of 350.org, began his work, he decided to find a lynch pin that would bind environmentalists, politicians, corporate and the common man. He settled on 350 – the number leading climate scientists say is the safe upper limit of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere – as his goal for COP15.
October 24 represents a unique opportunity to show leaders that the world wants an ambitious and effective climate treaty. And going about conducting an action is extremely simple. Just log on to www.350.org, search for your country to see if any actions are already registered and contact the concerned people. If you’re the first from your nation, a simple email to the 350 team will get you a starter kit, a downloadable guide, publicity material and much more. Join the growing movement and stand up for your right to a secure future.
