Beginner’s guide to 10.10.10.
Last year’s global day of action
A global day of action
10.10.10 is a global day of work for climate action. All around the world on Sunday October 10, 2010, people are coming together to improve their communities and neighborhoods with a project that will help heal the earth. From small projects, such as making a low carbon lunch, to larger projects, like outfitting a house, workplace or community center with solar panels, individuals are showing their commitment to finding climate solutions as soon as possible.
Citizens finding solutions
10.10.10 shows global leaders that citizens around the world, in every country, are ready to act on climate change and are tired of waiting. Rather than ring our hands or feel defeated, we are picking up our shovels, cutting boards, and CFLs and driving positive change on one specific day to show the power behind this movement.
It is not too late to join an existing work party near you or to form your own. We know it is time to act. Spread the word about this day and get your community and network involved.
350.org leading the way
Last year on October 24, 2009, 350.org – a climate solutions organization focused on 350 ppm, the safe limit for CO2 in our atmosphere — organized a global work day with a similar spirit, mobilizing thousands of people in over 5,200 events. This year’s event is poised to surpass last year’s in both number of events and individual involvement. For 10.10.10, 350.org has partnered with 10:10 – the global campaign to cut carbon by 10% each year — to organize a worldwide day of doing good to drive positive, global change.
How to get involved
- Sign up with an already existing, local work party or register your own. Even if it’s just you and your friends working in your garden or biking to a concert, adding your names to the existing list of participants helps strengthen this movement’s power.
