350NYC is the the local affiliate of 350.org, a grassroots network of volunteer-run campaigns in over 188 countries working to prevent climate chaos. Here in New York, we are working locally for a cleaner, greener, better New York City for everyone.
We have a steering committee and three working groups: one for fossil fuel divestment, one for local sustainability solutions, and one for Climate Education. Members are welcome to propose new initiatives.
Meetings are typically held monthly at the New York Society for Ethical Culture. We hold a general meeting every month — we encourage new folks to come to the general meeting first.

Why the name 350NYC? 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 over 400 parts per million to below 350 ppm. (More on the science of 350). But 350 is more than a number—it’s a symbol of where we need to head as a planet.
