I’ve got some exciting news for you:

We are thrilled to announce our partnership with 350.org, a global grassroots movement to solve the climate crisis founded by world renowned activist Bill McKibben.

This September, our organizations are uniting in two major events that will bring the world together in the movement to solve the climate crisis. On September 14, The Climate Reality Project will host 24 Hours of Reality, an online round-the-world, round-the-clock snapshot of the crisis we face. And then on September 24, 350.org hosts Moving Planet, a rally on the ground in communities worldwide to demand solutions to this crisis.

We’ve already told you about 24 Hours of Reality. In a live-streamed multimedia presentation by our founder and Chairman, former Vice President and Nobel Laureate Al Gore, along with 23 others, we will connect the dots between our changing climate and the extreme weather occurring around the globe.

The goal of Moving Planet is to get moving beyond fossil fuels — both symbolically by pouring into the streets in the thousands on foot, bicycle and other means of sustainable movement, and politically by bringing powerful demands to our leaders to move beyond fossil fuels to a 350ppm world. Mobilizing for individual and community solutions will continue to be important — but one of the main goals for Moving Planet is to demand government action, especially in places where governments are stalling on action despite the overwhelming reality of the climate crisis.

The Climate Reality Project and 350.org will work in partnership on both of these events. This September will be a month we won’t forget — a month for the world to unite around the reality of climate change and the need to take action.

Will you join us? You can RSVP on Facebook for 24 Hours of Reality here and for Moving Planet here.
