The Arts Club will be part of the biggest ever day of climate change activism on Saturday, with our crowd joining tens of thousands of people in over 150 countries urging world leaders to take steps to reduce carbon emissions.
Saturday 24th sees a worldwide wave of extraordinary events across nearly every country, from the bottom of the Great Barrier Reef to the summit of Mount Everest.
At each event a photo centred around the number 350 will be taken (350 is the parts per million of CO2 in the atmosphere that scientists say is the safe limit – it’s currently 387ppm). The photos from around the world will be delivered to waiting reporters and broadcast to the world’s media on giant screens in New York’s Times Square.
Within the solar-powered Village Underground, we'll have a bicycle-powered art installation showcasing climate change photography and we'll be inviting people to make a huge banner to promote the number 350.
The finished item, a piece of art produced and owned by those who participate, will then be photographed on the roof of the venue overlooking the City - with the photographs uploaded to 350.org to join the pressure on the Copenhagen treaty.For more information visit 350.org and check out our action on the 350 map.
We want to say a huge thanks to our friends at Paintworks who have sponsored our Arts Club 350 action by donating materials for our banner. Thank you!
