The 10th of October is a very special date this year: a Global Climate Action Day in an entirely new way. Bill McKibben's organization 350.org had the idea for a worldwide climate party, which will take place for the first time this year under the working title of “Global Work Party”. It's a party where we can all take action to remind especially the politicians of the progressing climate change and the involved threats for our planet, and also to make a statement for action and change. Everyone worldwide is invited to participate on the 10th of October, to become active, to put ideas into practice and to present and share the results on the homepage of 350.org. The aim is to celebrate together to make people aware of their own capability of provoking change. The founder of 350.org, Bill McKibben, will be present at the opening of the celebration via internet live stream. The mission of his organization is active climate protection, with the goal of reaching a CO2 concentration in the atmosphere of under 350ppm (particles per million). Joining the Global Work Party would support this mission.
Bill McKibben will also be a guest via live stream at the opening of the Elevate Festival in Austria (21st to 26th of October 2010 in Graz). With the program part "CHANGE", the festival dedicates a day to the topic of climate protection and the different possibilities of counteracting a climate catastrophe.
