350NYC is the the local affiliate of 350.org, a grassroots network of volunteer-run campaigns in over 188 countries working to solve the climate crisis. Here in New York, we are working locally for a cleaner, greener, better New York City for everyone.
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 nearly 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.
