What is 350?
“350 is the number that leading scientists say is the safe upper limit for carbon dioxide—measured in “Parts Per Million” in our atmosphere. 350 PPM—it’s the number humanity needs to get back to as soon as possible to avoid runaway climate change.” see more –> here
The preparation for the 350 events have been running for some time now. More than 4000 events will take place on the action day October 24. The 350.org states that the “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”
And how are they doing it? – through the web site www.350.org you are able to sign up for participating. You can register your own participation and that has lead to 170 different host countries. Further more they have made it possible for you to print out the logo – 350 – in the right font and stencil, which leads to projects of awareness like these:
first one is the back of my own bike, where the numbers 350 constantly are visible for the public. I have had some curious questions towards the number and other forms for thumbs up during my rides around Copenhagen city.
This second photo is the window of our beloved office at Solitudevej 1 Copenhagen, where 2 plates of 350 is hanging in the window.
The small things happening around the city brings awareness towards 350. I am looking forward to see the end result on October 24th.
Here is a A video giving some great insight on the campaign.
