Email your friends, co-workers, family, everyone you know to join you at your local Oct. 24 event and actions taking place in almost every country on the planet. Send your friends to the new Action Map to find their local action & RSVP! Use the Tell your Friend tool to help you rock your email outreach.

We use Twitter to share the latest movement updates, and highlight organizers around the world. The Media Team (follow ’em @350Buzz) recommends #350ppm as the main hashtag for Twitter. Hashtags are used on Twitter to indicate certain subjects so that people can search for them. You can also read more ‘tweets’ about 350 and the climate movement here.

6 – Adopt an action – Are you joining an action in your town? We hope so! Can you offer to help your local action organizer with online outreach? Things like creating a Facebook event & posting the action on local event sites (Upcoming, Craigslist…) can help reach extra people who may not have otherwise found out! You can find your local action via this map: https:///  Then reach out to the organizer by clicking "Contact this Person" below Event Organizer. Check out how Melissa Meece helped promote a Burlington, VT action by creating this great Facebook event.

8 – Share the "In every corner of the globe…" video! Tweet it, Facebook it, email it, project it, put it on your ipod, and even take your laptop to the streets. This video was made to convey the importance of 350 and inspire people around the globe to join events on Oct. 24.

Here’s a bonus idea, one it would be SO cool to see happen:

10 – Start an email chain letter! Successful chain letters are possibly the most viral way to reach out online. Whip up a letter about the importance of 350 and Oct. 24th, the Day of Action, and invite 10 friends to pass it on – with a message to invite their friends to pass it on. Soon, you may be WAY beyond your original group of friends. If anyone wants to try this, we’d love to support you and share our email address books, too.
