If you attend a 350 action for the first time, you might be surprised that there are probably no 350.org staff running the show.
350 is a movement more than an organization. We use distributed, grassroots organizing to run adaptive, locally-driven campaigns in every corner of the globe. 350.org’s small team of paid staff supports thousands of grassroots activists running their own independent, loosely affiliated organizations and campaigns in 188 countries.
We think the climate crisis is about power — but not just the kind of power that runs our cars and keeps the lights on. We believe that the only way we’ll see meaningful action on climate change is if we can counter the power of the fossil fuel industry with the power of people taking collective action.
We use online tools to leverage that power, to help those people see themselves as one movement, and to facilitate strategic offline action.
