A Day to Celebrate Climate Solutions

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.
