Step 2.
Find a group near you

To get active in the climate movement and meet like-minded people, use the map below to find a group in your community. Get in touch and join their next meeting. Everyone is welcome and everyone is needed.

If you don’t see a group in your area, it might be time to start one yourself!

Before organising or attending any face-to-face event or gathering, please check your country lockdown rules to know the Covid tier your area is in and what the restrictions are. Mask up and stay safe.

Don’t see a group near you? Start your own.

Our vision is to have thousands of local groups standing in solidarity with one another. We’ve got resources online to help you get up and running, and we can add your group to the map so others can join.

Frequently Asked Questions

What does 350 do?

We’re an international movement of ordinary people working to end the age of fossil fuels and build a world of community-led renewable energy for all.

350 works on grassroots campaigns across the globe, from opposing coal plants and mega-pipelines, to supporting renewable energy solutions and cutting the financial lifelines of the fossil fuel industry. All of our work leverages people power — individuals working together in pursuit of a common goal — to dismantle the influence and infrastructure of the fossil fuel industry. Find more on our About page.

How do I get involved?

At minimum, make sure you’re on our mailing list. Browse the rest of this page to see how you can make bigger contributions in a local group setting. From there, what you do and how much you get involved is up to your group’s needs, your interests, and how much time you want to put in!

I don’t have time to commit to a local group. How can I still be involved?

Whether in person or online, simply talking with those around you about the climate crisis and what’s happening in your area is an important step toward making change. Also follow climate action groups like 350 on social media and share their content for a low-commitment way to show your support.

If there is no local campaign group in your area yet, consider bringing other local supporters together for a one-time event – a potluck meal, film-screening, or roundtable discussion. By building relationships between passionate people in your community, a group is more likely to emerge, even if you’re not available to lead it yourself.

You can also donate to keep the movement strong.

Can you help run this campaign for me?

You know your own community better than anyone, so we believe local groups are best suited to run – and win! – their own campaigns. However, we can provide resources and guidance so you’re prepared to act on the changes you want to see.

Why aren’t you talking about things like recycling and veganism?

Our campaigns focus on building transformative power that challenges the status quo and social license of the fossil fuel industry. That means less focus on personal consumption choices (which are incremental) and more emphasis on collective action (which can tackle massive systemic issues).

Both are important, but we believe that by building a movement linked to these three demands, we can reach political tipping points that allow for change big enough to halt the climate crisis:

  • A fast and just transition to 100% renewable energy
  • No new fossil fuel projects, anywhere
  • Not a penny more in finance for the fossil fuel industry

 

So should I go ahead and start a local group?

If you can identify a few other dedicated people in your community to help you and are committed to 350.org’s basic demands and organizing principles, yes! Get started.

Our vision is to have thousands of local groups standing in solidarity with each other. It does take time, commitment, and energy to steer a group to maturity, but it’s precisely that sort of commitment we need if we are to change the course of history.

I already have a local group. Can we join 350?

That’s great! If you’re already in a group, you’re probably seeing the benefits of meeting face to face and organising together. Read through the local group guidelines and apply to register your group.

How much support will 350 offer when I start a group?

We have plenty of trainings and resources available to help you, and we often run campaigns that local groups can easily plug into. Depending on your location and how much staff or volunteer capacity is available, we also might be able to provide coaching and other direct support. But remember, in the end it’s you who can build a real local movement where you live.

Will 350 pay us to run a local group?

No, 350.org cannot pay you to run a group. However, we do have trainings on how to fundraise so your local group can gain its own resources to stand independently.

Can I do my work placement at 350 or at a local group?

You can join as a volunteer, but we do not offer formal internships or work placements and cannot transfer volunteering into school credits. A local group or partner organization might have a different answer – please contact them directly.
