350 Seattle: 350 Seattle is a grassroots organization passionate about climate and ecological justice. They began in May of 2013, and work at every level–including direct action, policy, and education. The fight for climate action is the fight for a living planet; nothing has ever been more important. Meetings are the first Wednesday of each month.
We seek to include climate related events and actions from any organizations, agencies or universities working to reduce global warming, its causes and its impacts. These organizations sponsor or facilitate climate events that you may wish to support. We check websites and calendars of these and many other groups each week for events focused on climate action for the Calendar post and email Updates. If you know of events or organizations with climate events please refer them to us! One Caveat: Since our focus is guided by the urgency of climate change and need for action to slow carbon emissions, there are many important social and environmental issues and events that aren’t included.
