10:10:10-A global day of Doing, Sunday Oct. 10, 2010 What is it? 10:10 has joined forces with international campaign group 350 to co-ordinate 10:10:10 – the biggest-ever day of positive action on climate change on Sunday, 10th October, 2010. Together we can trigger a tidal wave of emissions reductions, and send a powerful message to world leaders that we are already two steps ahead: busy cutting carbon in local communities, businesses and organizations on every continent. What's planned? Thousands of events are planned around the world: in Croatia and Russia there are 10,000 schools planting trees; in the Netherlands there's a carbon-cutting TV telethon; in Japan there are sumo wrestlers cycling to training in Japan; in India and The Maldives there are solar installations going up on the homes of world leaders... What can I do? On 10:10:10 you could... Organise a carrotmob and persuade a local business to go green Unveil your brand new video conferencing facilities, which will mean at least less 10% flying! Install a solar water panel, wind turbine or PV array on your school or sports club or place of worship Recruit a team of volunteers to fit free insulation into every loft in the neighbourhood Launch a bike-to-work/school incentive scheme or run a bike-repair workshop Ceremoniously cut the ribbon to your newly installed office water fountain (so long long-distance bottled water!) Start up a lift-share scheme or car-pool with your friends Hold a swap-shop event where people swap second hand clothes, furniture and books, instead of buying new Launch a new low-carbon local seasonal dish in your restaurant or canteen, or start up Meat-Free Mondays Meet up to celebrate the digging of a community / school vegetable patch to grow food locally Still stuck? Find out what's planned near you or check out these ideas from 10:10 UK! What's next? 1.Tell us what you're up to, and register large events here. 2.Sign up to 10:10 if you haven't already 3.And add your name to this public pressure campaign to get solar panels installed on the White House and other world leader houses in time for 10:10:10!
