This message and welcome video from the new Global Campaigns Team just went out to the 350 network:

Dear Friends,

Watching ordinary people become part of extraordinary movements across the Middle East these past few weeks has made me think: what are some of the lessons for our global climate movement?
Those of you receiving this email live in over 188 different countries. You speak different languages, grew up in different nations, and if you pray, you pray to a multitude of different gods.

And yet, you've come together with over the last two years and done spectacular things. Together, you've organized over 15,000 climate actions in nearly every country on Earth. Together, you've taken a scientific data point — 350 parts per million of CO2 — and made it the symbol of a growing movement.

The actions across the Middle East remind us that all people desire dignity, peace, and a safer world for the next generation – and that change can happen on a scale and at a speed that was not even possible just a few years ago.

For our movement, it is a reminder that to solve the climate crisis we need more than the power of solar panels and wind turbines: we need the power of people. Today, I'm proud to introduce some of the people on the staff who will be working with you this year to build a people powered movement to solve the climate crisis.

We'll be in touch soon with more details and look forward to hearing your ideas about how to take this movement forward. In the meantime, please send your thoughts and support to our friends around the world who are fighting today for a better future for themselves and their families.

Thank you for coming together,

Kelly Blynn for the Global Team
