About 350.org

We are bold, creative and strategic

 

The climate crisis is immense – we must be daring and courageous in response. We embrace new experiments and solutions, recognizing that this crisis requires new ways of solving problems.


 

We Work for Justice

 

The fight against climate change is a fight for justice. People all over the world are feeling the impacts, but the people suffering the most are the ones who have done the least to cause the problem.

The work we do — and the ways we do it — has to address that injustice. That means listening to the communities who are getting hit the hardest, amplifying the voices that are being silenced, and following the leadership of the people on the frontlines of the crisis.


 

We Care for and Trust One Another

 

We take care of ourselves and our communities, honor one another in our non-violent approach to this work, and share that spirit and learning with others.

No one has all the answers, so we value the experience and knowledge of our partners and our communities. That's why we listen to our communities and our allies to learn and evolve together.


 

We are Stronger When We Collaborate

 

Climate change is not just an environmental issue, or a social justice issue, or an economic issue — it’s all of those things at once. The only way we will be strong enough to put pressure on governments and stand up to the fossil fuel industry is if we all work together.

That means bringing people together and building diverse coalitions — from students, to labor unions, human rights and social justice groups; from marginalized communities and faith groups, to universities, business owners and all those who believe in the need for transformational change.


 

We are Transparent and Accountable

 

To ensure the integrity of our work, we strive to be transparent and open, while respecting everyone's right to privacy and ensuring people's safety.

We are accountable to each other, to the people and groups we collaborate with, and to those impacted by our work. We strive to honor the relationships we build with each other.

 

HISTORY

 

350.org was founded in 2008 by a group of university friends in the United States along with author Bill McKibben, who wrote one of the first books on global warming for the general public, with the goal of building a global climate movement. 350 was named after 350 parts per million — the safe concentration of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere.

Our first actions were global days of action that linked activists and organizations around the world, including the International Day of Climate Action in 2009, the Global Work Party in 2010, Moving Planet in 2011. 350 quickly became a planet-wide collaboration of organizers, community groups and regular people fighting for the future.
