Community Action for a Sustainable Alameda Will Hold 350 Event at Alameda City Hall

On October 24th CASA and BikeAlameda will be participating in An International Day of Climate Action with an event on the plaza in front of City Hall.

On this day of action events will be held worldwide to highlight the need for urgent action by ALL nations to combat climate change and to raise a loud voice letting world leaders know that when they gather in Copenhagen, Denmark in December it is imperative that they take bold steps to set the world on a safer, saner, and more responsible path. Learn more at 350.org.

The motivating number behind this call to action is 350. This number – 350 ppm – is what top climate scientists agree is the upper safe limit for carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. Currently the level of carbon dioxide is at 385 ppm and rising. It is critical that for world leaders to embrace 350 ppm as a goal and then take the bold steps necessary to change our world and get on the path back to 350.

Here in Alameda we will be gathering in front of City Hall to educate ourselves more about the importance of 350ppm as the target for CO2 levels and to learn more about ways we can act locally to reduce carbon emissions. Our focus will be on reducing transportation related carbon emissions.

Activities will include:
How far is 350 seconds? – Use our interactive map of Alameda to find out how far you can get on a bike or on foot in Alameda in 350 seconds (just shy of 6 minutes). You might be surprised at how many of your trips in town you can complete without getting in the car!

Do I really need my car? – Come learn how to use the 511.org Public Transit Trip Planner Tool. It’s easier than you think to get where you need to go using public transit! Come and let us show you how.

Can I get there by bike? – Experienced Alameda cyclists will be on hand to help you map safe routes around town. BONUS POINTS if you ride your bike to the event

Say Cheese!! – At 11AM we will be taking a group picture to document our participation in the International Day of Climate Action and share it with the world. We will form the numbers 3-5-0 to show our awareness and our communities commitment to action. Join us at 11AM and bring a smile!

But wait, there’s more….. We will have information on hand about 350.org, information on a 5-step Fossil Fuel Addiction Recovery Program, bike maps of Alameda, and more. CASA and BikeAlameda champion Tom Christoffer will be providing live music, and BikeAlameda will be happy to sell you a cool new bike helmet.

Please join us on the 24th if you can. In addition, you are our best advertising so please forward this message to anyone you think might like to come out to City Hall. We also encourage you to post the flyer at your school, church, or place of work to help us spread the message.

Thanks, and we look forward to seeing you on the 24th,

CASA Steering Committee
