On September 24, 2011, hundreds of thousands of people came together around the world for Moving Planet Day.
2000 Events In Over 175 Countries
Organized by 350.org, Moving Planet is a day when people march, bike, skate, sing and dance to demand action on the climate crisis and call for the world to go beyond fossil fuels. At more than 2000 events in 175+ countries, activists gathered to let leaders know that a movement is rising to move our planet forward to a clean energy future.
Scientists have determined that to preserve our planet, we must reduce the amount of carbon dioxide (CO2) in the atmosphere from its current level of 392 parts per million (“ppm”)to below 350 ppm. You can think of 350 as the “safe upper limit” for carbon dioxide in our atmosphere. But 350 is more than a number—it’s a symbol of where we need to head as a planet.
Watch our slideshow from the past weekend of Moving Planet events — a truly amazing show of global solidarity, commitment, and creativity.
