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.
