350 DAY OF ACTION

Last month, in preparation for today's day of actions around the globe, school children in Hawaii expressed their feelings in art.



The inspiration for the day of international events came from the global network at 350.org. They report that "TODAY, 24 October 2009, people in 181 countries came together for the most widespread day of environmental action in the planet's history. At over 5200 events around the world, people gathered to call for strong action and bold leadership on the climate crisis." They've got a great slideshow and lots of ideas for how to keep the movement building at 350.org.

Andrew Revkin has a running story at the NY Times on today's events and lots of comments at his dotearth blog.

Here are the featured photos at flickr.



The photos are pouring in from around the world. You can keep track of them at the global collection at flickr or at 350.org.

[update 25 october: Thanks to the links in Revkin's NY Times coverage, I just found the Greenpeace "put your nude body on the line" youtube clip (below) from a few years ago.]
