We are part of the international movement of ordinary people standing up to the fossil fuel industry to end the age of fossil fuels.
In Canada, we are committed to pushing our elected leaders to take real climate leadership by freezing the tar sands expansion and investing in bold, transformative change in line with a made-in-Canada Green New Deal. We do this by working with local frontline groups and organizations to fight for climate justice.
Our name “350” comes from 350ppm–as in parts per million, the level scientists have identified as the safe upper limit for CO2 in our atmosphere. We like to think that what ppm really stands for is “people-powered-movement” — the kind that will hold our leaders accountable to the latest climate science, so we can start the global transformation we so desperately need to act at the scale science and justice require.
