Why 350?

350 NYC is part of a grassroots campaign to solve the global climate crisis. We are part of a network of  thousands of volunteer-run campaigns in over 188 countries.

350 means climate safety. To preserve our planet, scientists tell us we must reduce the amount of CO2 in the atmosphere from its current levels of nearly 400 parts per million to below 350 ppm. But 350 is more than a number—it’s a symbol of where we need to head as a planet.

We work hard to organize in a new way— we use online tools to facilitate strategic offline action. We believe that if a global grassroots movement holds our leaders accountable to realities of science and principles of justice, we can realize the solutions that will ensure a better future for all.
