Help Change the World Saturday - Join the International Day of Climate Action

Got plans for Saturday? How about helping save the world and standing up for a just, sustainable future? 350.org and other organizations are hosting the International Day of Climate Action on Saturday, October 24. So far there are more than 4,000 actions scheduled, from bike rides to tree plantings to marches, to writing politicians to taking photos of people gathered to support significant action to help address global climate change.

Government officials will be meeting in Copenhagen in December for the United Nations Climate Change Conference, and negotiations look to be less than hopeful for a truly relevant and necessary climate plan.

Getting involved with this day of action is just one way to get involved in your community while striving for transformative systemic change.

To get you in the mood a bit, read this essay by activist and 350 founder Bill McKibben, called "A Timely Reminder to the Read Limits of Growth."

And, check out this slideshow from 350.org. (It's about 18 minutes long, or you can quick click through it.)



Climate change is something that affects every person, being and ecosystem on the planet, so, if you're wanting a chance to do something really positive for everyone, get involved in positive actions to reduce climate change and promote a compassionate, just, sustainable world for all.
