Think about organizing an event, or getting involved if you can:
Friends of the Earth is partnering with 350.org and other allied groups to organize a global work party on October 10, 2010 (10/10/10).
Congress has failed to act aggressively to solve to the climate crisis, and we've decided that we're not waiting for them any longer. On Oct. 10, on every corner of the globe, we will implement climate solutions: from solar panels to community gardens, wind turbines to bike workshops. We'll tell leaders: “We're getting to work--what about you?”
These actions will demonstrate to Washington the broad public support that exists for climate solutions, and can help shame politicians into siding with people and the planet instead of corporate polluters.
Please use the form below to sign up to host an Oct. 10 action.
It's still early, so it's okay if you don't yet know all the details of your local work party. There's a list of work-party ideas at www.350.org/workparty-ideas to get things moving, but don't worry if you don't have a game plan just yet.
If you register now, we'll follow up and provide you with resources and support that can help you out along the way. We'll also try to connect you with supporters in your area who might be able to lend a hand.
