Hello NY CSR,
I wanted to update you! On 24 October, people in 181 countries came together for the most widespread day of environmental action in the planet's history. At over 5200 events around the world, people gathered to call for strong action and bold leadership on the climate crisis.
NY CSR meetup had representatives too. Some photos:http://www.meetup.com/The-New-York-Corporate-Social-Responsibility-Meetup-Group/photos/755267
...Over 19,000 photos have been submitted so far to 350.org, sent to [address removed]! You can see them all on Flickr at http://www.flickr.com/photos/350org/sets
Many photos were delivered to the UN (Climate Change Team/experts) on Monday Oct 26.
350.org in the News, a few highlights from the coverage of 350.org and the 350 ppm target:
+ October 24, 2009, Juliet Eilperin, Washington Post, "Global demonstrations to push for reduced carbon levels"
+ October 22, 2009, DailyClimate.org, "A day built around a data point goes viral"
Even if you could not participate in 350 activities previously, you can still get involved, especially by signing a petition that will delivered in later this month Copenhagen. http://www.350.org/nextsteps
In any case, thanks for all you do and your interest in social responsibility. We all make a difference!
