With just over two weeks left before 10/10/10, there are over 3500
events in 165 countries--and hundreds of new events being registered
for 10/10/10 every single day.
This is clearly going to be huge. Don't miss it: get involved today.
There are just 18 days left until the 10/10/10 Global Work Party, and
it's shaping up to be the largest single day of carbon-cutting action
in the planet's history.
It's hard to keep up with all the incredible news pouring in from
around the world, and even harder to know what news to share first, so
let's just dive right in:
*First up: the explosive growth of this movement.* In the last two
weeks alone, over a thousand 10/10/10 events have been registered. In
the last five days, ten of the "missing countries" without events got
on the map, bringing our country count up to a whopping 165!
If you haven't gotten involved yet, you can find an event to join near
you by clicking here [ http://www.350.org/map ]. If there isn't one
near you, you can register a new event by clicking here [
http://www.350.org/oct10 ]. And make sure to keep track of our event
and country counters on the gorgeous new homepage at www.350.org. [
If you're already linked up with a local 10/10/10 event, you can click
here to check out the 25 missing countries [
http://www.350.org/missing ] that are still not on the map for
10/10/10. Maybe you know someone that knows someone that knows someone
in, say...Jamaica? Or Bhutan? If so, you can give the climate movement
a real boost and spread the word.
*Next: the huge scale of 10/10/10 events.* When we announced 10/10/10,
we expected that some people would plant a few trees-but we were blown
away when we found out that a team in the Philippines is organizing
2,000 people to come out and plant mangroves. We expected that some
people would promote sustainable transportation, but we weren't
expecting organizers in New Zealand to fix up every old bike in their
capital city. People are thinking BIG for 10/10/10.
If you haven't signed up your local work party yet, don't let these
big events intimidate you-instead, let them inspire you. Even if you
can't pull off anything at quite this scale, you can still dream big
and know that no matter the size of your own event, you'll be part of
*Third: the buzz is building all around the world.* Every day, we get
more calls in the 350 office from reporters and politicians. They know
something huge is in the works, and they want to get in on the action.
Let's make sure we've got something to show them on 10/10/10: now is
the time to spread the word to make sure LOTS of people come to local
events, and start working on your banners to make sure we get lots of
iconic "350: Get to Work!" pictures to show the media.
*Fourth: we're all working together.* One major reason that the buzz
is building so much is that our hundreds of partner organizations are
stepping up to spread the word. From Greenpeace to the World Council
of Churches, organizations all over the planet are getting their
members fired up for 10/10/10. And of course, our featured partners
over at 1010Global.org are pulling out all the stops to make this day
*Finally: this movement is made of real people and real stories.* Some
of their pictures are below. We want to share yours too. So email us:
send your latest updates to organizers op 350.org [
mailto:organizers op 350.org?subject=Updates%20about%20Our%20350%20Work ]
and your pictures as attachments to photos op 350.org [
mailto:photos op 350.org?subject=City%2C%20Country ] (make the subject
line the "City, Country" that the photo was shot in).
Together, we are building something truly amazing. It's an honor to do
it with all of you.

What is 350? *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. To get there, we need a different kind of
PPM-a "people powered movement" that is made of people like you in
every corner of the planet.
