Celebrate the 350.org International Day of Climate Action this Saturday in Iowa

(Thanks for the heads up about these events. - promoted by desmoinesdem)

This Saturday, participants in over 3,000 events in 170 countries will observe the 350.org International Day of Climate action. Activists will ask international and national leaders to take real action to reduce CO2 levels from 390 to 350 parts per million and protect our planet.   

1Sky has helped plan many of these events and here in Iowa, we'll also be calling for Senators Harkin and Grassley to take real action to create clean energy jobs.

If you're concerned about Climate Change, please check out one of the events occurring in a town near you.  

And if you're in Des Moines tomorrow night, 1Sky will be hosting an open house at our new office at 118 SE 4th Street, inside the Market Street Media Foundry, at 6:00 P.M.

Wherever possible, at events across Iowa, 1Sky will provide postcards and scripts so that you can tell Senators Harkin and Grassley that you hold them personally responsible for the action we need to save our climate for our children and grandchildren and boost our economy with new green jobs.

Links to events planned by local activists in Fairfield, Ames, Des Moines, Waverly, Cedar Falls, Quad Cities, and Iowa City are available after the cut…

Thanks for your help in protecting our planet, and I hope to see you at an event soon!

  • thanks for the heads up

    I hope someone who attends one of these events will post a diary here afterwards about it. I will be attending a friend’s wedding on Saturday.

    • Feel free to stop by our open house tonight

      If you have time after 6 PM tonight, feel free to stop by our office at 118 SE 4th St for an open house.

    • I've been working on the event

      in the Illinois Quad Cities, over at Augustana College. (I’m working on signs for it this evening.) I found out about the prayer meeting in Davenport later.  They aren’t concurrent, so I’m going to try to get to both. (And then help with the Democratic float in the Bettendorf Halloween Parade.)

      I don’t think I’ll get any pictures, but I’ll describe the events.
