350.org

This post is part of Blog Action Day, where – for me – the main aim was to write something about the necessity for awareness, change and action towards our environment.

I have been involved in conceptualising actions and events for the global action day on the 24th of October for 350.org – an international campaign dedicated to building a movement to unite the world around solutions to the climate crisis–the solutions that science and justice demand.

Their mission is to inspire the world to rise to the challenge of the climate crisis—to create a new sense of urgency and of possibility for our planet.

The focus is on the number 350–as in parts per million, the level scientists have identified as the safe upper limit for CO2 in our atmosphere. At the moment we are in the danger zone and action need to be taken at the Climate Conference in Copenhagen this December, where world leaders will meet.

more info on their website

One of the things I initiated is the following:

Promote 350.org and spread the message by writing/drawing the number 350.org with a bar of soap on the glass wall of bus stops around the city. If you want to you can add an additional text as “this is an environmentally friendly message/ This message doesn’t do any harm to our environment/future/ Let’s clean up now so we can enjoy the future” or write down a way to cut down C02 emissions.


ps. If you leave your soap bar, you invite others to share their thoughts too!!

The underlying thoughts and strategies for this are using soap to ‘clean’ our future as well that you can wash it away it doesn’t leave permanent marks on the glass. Sort of an environmentally friendly message!

Further there is a plan to stage a (social) dialogue around the statues in Vigelandsparken and there will  be lots of activities going on at Oslo S and Rådhusplassen. Where we hopefully able to transmit information in an engaging way.
