How will you celebrate 10/10/10?




bbc 10/10/10

CicLAvia happens to fall on 10/10/10 — a “Global Work Party” day of climate action loosely coordinated by environmental organization 350.org, which has green activists around the world holding both fun and serious events aimed at pushing policymakers to address climate change. This means that eco-friendly parties are planned not just around CicLAvia — but all over L.A. and around the world tomorrow. Here are my top picks for how you can celebrate:

Don’t quite understand what the Global Work Party is all about? LA Times’ article events describes green leader Bill McKibben’s hopes for the event along with details on a few local events, NY Times’ Green blog offers a national and international perspective on how the events are intended to push policymakers to address climate change, and NPR speaks with organizers from the three largest carbon emitting countries in the world.
