INTERNATIONAL DAY
OF CLIMATE ACTION

On October 16, the largest coordinated climate communication of all time took place, thanks to Blog Action Day. Through the power of social media, bloggers from across the world increased the total awareness of the number 350 by showing their support for environmental action, setting up October 24 to be quite possibly the "largest widespread day of environmental action in the history of the planet"! Articles, messages, pictures, tweets and feeds were all a part of the viral wave creating over 4500 events in over 170 countries.

In just two months, leaders of the free world will gather in Copenhagen to come up with a new agreement to reduce carbon emissions that cause global warming. Since bloggers used their social networks to increase awareness now many understand that this may be the last and only chance to show support of reversing climate change and unleashing the green economy in full effect and the best way to do it, is to get involved.

It's not enough to only make conscious consumer choices, we need to expect more and demand more, and therefore, we must do more. 350.org is a grassroots environmental campaign started by Bill Mckibben in hopes to raise awareness through social media and then follow up the support of 350 by mobilizing direct action from places all over the world. You can follow them on Twitter @350. Through the efforts of social media, people have created events large and small ranging from get-togethers at the base of Mount Everest to pushing the extreme opposite meeting place to the reefs of Maldives. You too can become involved; find out if there are events going on in the streets of your community.

People from all over the world united to be a part of the grassroots campaign to reverse the impacts of climate change. They helped spread the word and used different platforms of social media to talk about 350 and what the impacts of climate change mean to them and their future. Another way people got involved was by hosting get-togethers, and included the number 350 somewhere to be a part of the global wave and show support. Check out 350.org's photo stream from inspiring pictures from all over the world.

If you were a part of this impactful day, donít forget to upload your pictures to 350.org so you can become a part of the global gallery of images and stories that will be saved and used to be a part of the movement that changes the course of climates history and future. Activists will be uploading events and pictures to 350.org which will be available to view in real time on a giant screen in New York City's Time Square.

Blog Action Day demonstrated the power that bloggers across the web can have on raising awareness about an important issue, however this weekend, people across the world took it to another level. Social media alone can't stop global warming but your efforts to demonstrate your support and your cause can, which is exactly what we saw this weekend.
