A Day to Celebrate Climate Solutions

by
Peter Rothberg

One of the world's most innovative grassroots environmental groups, 350.org, is helping build a movement to
unite the world around solutions to the climate crisis. This video
makes clear how high the stakes are and explains why 350 is the most
important number in the world.

In preparation for what it anticipates will be a major day of
international actions on October 10, 350.org
is giving out microgrants of $1000 to local climate action projects in
the planet's eight major regions.
Anyone can submit a project until
August 7.  A public vote decides the winners. The only real admissions
criteria, beyond the imperative of combating climate change, is that
the project have some sort of milestone on 10/10/10—the Global Work
Party: "A Day to Celebrate Climate Solutions"—either a
kick-off event, the culmination of an initiative, or some other
significant moment.

Possible projects include local renewable energy initiatives,
community gardens, sustainable transportation measures, political
lobbying projects, the creation of green media and much, much more.
Check out the FAQs for questions
and further information and check this map
to find a 10/10/10 event near you. If you don't see one, here are tips to organize your own "work
party."

FRIENDS: Help Us Fight

Independent journalism has become the last firewall against government and corporate lies. Yet, with frightening regularity, independent media sources are losing funding, closing down or being blacked out by Google and Facebook. Never before has independent media been more endangered. If you believe in Common Dreams, if you believe in people-powered independent media, please support us now and help us fight—with truths—against the lies that would smother our democracy. Please help keep Common Dreams alive and growing. Thank you. -- Craig Brown, Co-founder
