350.org is building a global grassroots movement to solve the climate crisis. Our online campaigns, grassroots organizing, and mass public actions are led from the bottom up by thousands of volunteer organizers 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 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.
350.org works hard to organize in a new way—everywhere at once, using online tools to facilitate strategic offline action. We want to be a laboratory for the best ways to strengthen the climate movement and catalyze transformation around the world. 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.
Or to put it another way...

Speaker Series: NM’s Largest Climate Polluters Report
What: First Report on NM’s Largest Climate Polluters
Where: Pre-register on Zoom at LINK
When: 6:30 PM MT, Monday, March 27, 2023
Who: Gabe Pacyniak, JD UNM School of Law and others.
Description: Hear authors of the report, “Impacts of NM’s Largest Emissions Sources" including Gabe Pacyniak, JD discuss the February 1 report that for the first time examines the climate and health damaging pollution from large stationary sources in New Mexico.
The report identifies 189 stationary sources that together contribute approximately 25 percent of the state’s climate pollution along with a large share of conventional pollutants. The largest share of pollution from these sources comes from the electric power and oil and gas sectors. Other large stationary sources include mines, manufacturing facilities, airports, and universities.
The report also analyzed where large sources are located and suggested that there may be equity benefits to reducing emissions in those areas with a high percentage of people of color, lower-income people, or people with health vulnerabilities. Four regions—the San Juan Basin; Permian Basin; Albuquerque, Bernalillo, and Sandoval Counties; and Las Cruces and Dona Aña County—were identified as areas with clusters of large stationary sources.
Finally, the report finds that current state policies are not adequate to achieve climate pollution reductions from these sources in keeping with the state’s climate goals but identifies ways that climate pollution policies could be designed to both reduce climate pollution and maximize public health benefits for communities where these sources are located. UNM’s Just Transition Grand Challenge initiative and the nonprofit organization PSE Healthy Energy hosted the report. The report was funded by the Environmental Defense Fund.

The Linea is the name of a futuristic-yet-realistic urban planning project that targets ecological excellence.
It consists of the construction of a single type of elevated building:
This type of town planning would provide immediate solutions to the following ecological problems:
The Linea takes the form of a rectilinear building:
which periodically alternate almost identical sections of a little more than a kilometer in length (named Modules) which contain housing, a school, and a center of activities necessary for the people residing in each module.
The 2 following views show a simplified side view of the Linea at the level of a short section of housing and a section at the level of this same section:

Sharing! Lots of other great podcasting courses here as well.
Stories can connect people across boundaries of distance and experience. Stories can also help activists and activist groups build power, reframe and shift oppressive dominant narratives, and help create space to grow community. Activist storytelling, when created and disseminated with intention and care, infuses our culture with myriad viewpoints and creates a kind of intervention that can help us stride toward accountability, justice, and joy. As communicators, we have the opportunity to uncover media’s intentional or unwitting replications of an oppressive society, and consciously expand its capabilities.
In this one hour online course, Jennifer Johnson Avril will discuss the history of activist-made media, how to apply organizing tactics to storytelling, and how to communicate for movement building.

My brother and I want to buy carbon credits to offset our carbon footprint, but not sure where to buy the credits verified by formal organizations.
I've seen lots of the marketplace and most of them are B2B. They sell the credits in huge amounts. It would be a burden for us to consume that.
Is there any recommendation of the marketplace selling the credits? (verified by famous standard such as VCS or GS would be better)
Edit- I meant climate advocacy group sorry
Hello 350 friends!
I’m a postdoc in Environmental Studies researching how climate justice organizers have conversations about climate action. I’d like to warmly invite any interested climate justice organizers who live in the US and are over 18 years old to contribute their thoughts through an anonymous online survey. Survey respondents will receive a $15 gift card as a thank you. If you’re interested in participating, please send me a message and I will share the survey link with you (I’m not posting it because I’ve had some issues with spam responses).
Hey r/350 my name is Jason and I’m with Mogo - a Canadian fintech brand that aims to help Canadians save sustainably! We’re on a mission to help Canada achieve net-zero carbon emissions – and become a climate positive country.
A few days ago was Zero Emissions day, and we've made it our goal to plant 1 MILLION trees in partnership with Vancouver-based restoration organization, veritree. We would love it if you could like our post and share it with your friends to spread the word!
While planting tree's is important to us, we also hope to educate, provide jobs, food security, and iterate Why trees are so important in a healthy, growing ecosystem! Knowledge is power and awareness sparks change!
