This past Sunday, the youth leaders of the 350 event in Quito, Ecuador gathered together in the Ciclopaseo, the weekly Sunday activity when the main street through Quito gets shut down to car traffic.  With unsustainable transportation all around us (highways on both sides and an airport right next door), we rode bikes, and painted colorful banners to symbolize our hope for a more sustainable future.  We handed out hundreds of stickers with info about the event the following week, an eco-festival and concert in Quito’s historic Plaza San Francisco.  There, they will form a giant zero with candles in the evening, to be united with 3’s and 5’s in other parts of the world.
