350.org is building a global grassroots movement to solve the climate crisis. Their online campaigns, grassroots organizing, and mass public actions are led from the bottom up by thousands of volunteer organizers in over 188 countries. 350.org works hard to organize in a new way—everywhere at once, using online tools to facilitate strategic offline action. They want to be a laboratory for the best ways to strengthen the climate movement and catalyze transformation around the world.
350.org is a growing global organization incorporated and based in the United States, with staff currently working in 23 countries around the globe. 350.org is on a rapid growth trajectory, having grown their budget 400% since they incorporated in 2011. They seek ever more opportunities to galvanize the public to respond to the threat of climate change. This is due to two factors: scientific evidence of the threat of the problem and severity of impacts, and the success they have had in mobilization, creative communications, and organizing. Looking to the future, they believe aggressive political action on climate change can happen, but creating the political space for that change will push us to work more creatively, smartly, and quickly than ever before.
Their organisation is comprised of energetic, passionate, and disciplined change-makers. They are known for their sophisticated use of technology and their distributed organizing, mass mobilization, and connections to other social movements. They love Skype emoticons, customized Spotify playlists, open-office formats with newspaper clippings on the walls, and marching in the streets.See more
