Part of the Global Awareness for Climate Change event
“Connect the Dots”
taking place around the world on May 5!
Today on May 5, 2012, people around the world are volunteering, documenting, educating and protesting to support communities on the front lines of climate change! Record-breaking heat waves in Russia, wildfires in Australia, floods in Thailand. Every time we pick up the newspaper and read about another record-breaking natural disaster, it becomes increasingly clear that climate change is not a future problem — it’s happening right now. “Connect the Dots” is a project of 350.org and partner organizations to shine a spotlight on the connections between extreme weather and climate change. We will use those connections to issue a wake-up call for our communities, the media, and our politicians. We’ll kick off the project with Climate Impacts Day on 5/5/12, when thousands of communities around the world come together to take action to Connect the Dots and call for urgent action to stop the climate crisis.
Who: You, your neighbors, family, friends, and the rest of climate movement.
What: Actions – rallies, presentations, art projects, and more – that help your community connect the dots between extreme weather and climate change.
Where: All over the world.
When: May 5, 2012 (and beyond)
Why: Because climate change is not a future problem. It is happening right now, and it is devastating communities around the world.
Join us for this FREE public event in Lowell and be one of thousands around the world participating in this “day of action” in support of climate change awareness!
