Weekend of Action: 11-13 December - "The World Wants a Real Deal!"
The World Wants a Real Deal
There's a global mobilization—organized by many different groups in the TckTckTck coalition and the Global Climate Campaign—planned for the weekend of December 12 - right in the middle of the Copenhagen climate conference.
There will be big rallies on Saturday in many cities around the globe, and on Sunday communities of faith the world over will ring church bells, beat drums, blow horns -- all 350 times.
At 350.org, our focus for the weekend is on coordinating candlelight vigils at iconic and strategic locations around the world on Friday and Saturday night.

Saturday December 12th
The Saturday in the middle of the UN climate negotiations has historically been an important day for the global climate movement--it's the the midway point in the UN talks, and an important mobilization moment for cities around the world. Many rallies are being planned in big cities already--to see if anything is being planned near you just click here to check the website of the Global Climate Campaign.

Sunday December 13th
On Sunday, December 13th, communities of faith -- churches, mosques, synagogues, temples, and all kinds of spiritual groups -- are invited to "sound out" the 350 call to action. Led by our friends at the World Council of Churches, who are also partnering with other faith and interfaith groups, people all over the world will gather to ring bells, beat drums, and make all kinds joyful, prayerful noises 350 times.
