An inspiring day of climate action

We had to recap some of the wonderful events that took place across the globe on Saturday, October 24, 2009. These events continue to inspire an ever growing community people calling for action on climate change. Transition Initiatives in the US answered the call to action and, in collaboration with many other organization, put together events across the country.

Here are some photos (see all photos from all actions here):

350 Newburyport

The Newburyport High School Environment Club, Green Artists League, First Parish Church of Newbury and Transition Newburyport partnered to observe the International Day of Climate Action. They created a banner that will be on display at the high school and crafted healing blankets for mountaintop removal sites in West Virginia. At 3:50 PM the church bells tolled 350 times echoed by students responding with improvised percussive instruments. Photo shared by Transition Newburyport. Many more photos here.

Transition Whatcom planters

Day is done but Transition Whatcom, WA had a great 350 day event called the Perennial Project. We planted over 350 edible perennials in public places all over the county- at schools, businesses, and parks. These plants will bear food for years, especially the nut and fruit trees, and are a practical manifestation of the 350 goal to reduce carbon emissions. These are some of our fantastic edible perennial planters! // Photo shared by Katherine Clark.
