350.org Australia aims to rapidly end fossil fuels by building a global climate movement.
The number 350 means climate safety: to preserve a liveable planet, scientists tell us we must reduce the amount of CO2 in the atmosphere from its current level of 400 parts per million to below 350 ppm.
HOW WE WORK
If you attend a 350 action for the first time, you might be surprised that there are probably no 350.org staff running the show.
350 is a movement more than an organisation. We use distributed, grassroots organising to run adaptive, locally-driven campaigns. 350.org Australia’s small team of paid staff supports thousands of grassroots activists running their own independent, loosely affiliated campaigns across the country.
350.org Global was founded in 2008 by a group of university friends in the U.S along with author, environmentalist and activist, Bill McKibben.
Since then, 350 has grown into one of the world’s largest creative activism groups working to build a powerful movement demanding climate change action. We work in almost every country in the world to stop new fossil fuel projects and speed up the transition to renewable energy.
