350.org is a new kind of kind of “people powered movement” (PPM) that is made of communities in every corner of the planet. 350 is the number that leading scientists say is the safe upper limit for carbon dioxide in our atmosphere. Scientists measure carbon dioxide in “parts per million” (ppm), so 350ppm is the number humanity needs to get below as soon as possible to avoid runaway climate change.
Moving Planet is 350.org‘s next BIG global day of action, and it’s happening on September 24th. They’re calling it “A Day to Move Beyond Fossil Fuels”, hundreds of events are already being planned–from big bike parades and marches with tens of thousands of people to smaller community education events.
350.org is now asking that people come together in communities around the world, and brainstorm ideas for a local Moving Planet event for September 24th.
If you register your local meetup, they’ll put it on the website so others can find it and make sure to follow up with you to make sure you have everything you need. They have materials to help you nail down a solid action plan for September 24th, including a guide to hosting a meetup, a “fill in the blanks” action worksheet, and an optional presentation you can give about campaign strategy.
You can grab all the materials you’ll need to plan and host a successful meetup here: www.moving-planet.org/meetup/materials
With strong local teams and solid strategic plans, we’ll be able to make September 24th a historic day in the journey to move beyond fossil fuels.
350.org is building a global grassroots movement to solve the climate crisis: online campaigns, grassroots organizing, and mass public actions are led from the bottom up by thousands of volunteer organizers in over 188 countries. You can join 350.org on Facebook by becoming a fan of the page at facebook.com/350org and follow them on twitter by visiting twitter.com/350.
