Join the Party on 10.10.10!

What are you doing this weekend? No matter where you are in the world, you have the opportunity to do something about climate change this Sunday., an organization founded by Bill McKibben and some very inspiring twentysomethings, including Ten Ways world-changer May Boeve, have organized a global work party to encourage people to join or create an action that "will help deal with global warming in your city or community."

The event is a follow-up to last year's International Day of Climate Action, which was successful in raising awareness about the pressing need to address climate change with tangible actions from community members and political leaders.

As of this writing, 6846 events are registered in 188 countries. Global work parties range from trash cleanups to solar installations, and there are many ideas for organizing or joining a party on the website. I'll be at this event on Lummi Island. Join me or find an event near you.

Register or create your own event right now, and remember that the work party is just the beginning. Send pictures, let us know which events you attended, and tell us how you plan to keep the momentum going!
