350Africa.org is building an African movement to fight climate change. We are part of a million-people strong global climate movement that campaigns through grassroots organising and mass public actions in 188 countries. The number 350 means climate safety: to preserve a liveable planet, scientists tell us we must reduce the amount of CO2 in the atmosphere from its current level of 400 parts per million and rising, to below 350 ppm. Climate change will hit Africa hardest so this fight is about climate justice. Many of the poorest Africans, women and children are already facing more drought, floods and extreme weather that threaten their livelihoods and push food prices up. The fact is climate change is going to affect all of us. We believe that an African grassroots movement can hold our leaders accountable to the realities of science and the principles of climate justice. That movement is rising from the bottom up all over the continent and is coming together to champion solutions that will ensure a better future for all.

From the 20th to the 27th of September, we will use this moment to show the world that the solutions to a Just Recovery are about building community and working together to grow and share our resources.

From September 20th to 27th Pacific Islanders around the world are calling for decisive climate action. One year on since more than 7.6 million people took to the streets during the Global Climate Strikes, the 350.org network of Pacific Climate Warriors are organizing climate actions as part of their regional week of climate action, Matagi Mãlohi – A Just Recovery

Join us in sending a clear message that a just recovery from this pandemic and the climate crisis means planting seeds, literally and figuratively, that future generations will harvest.

This week of action is part of a larger wave of COVID-safe global climate strikes unfolding in the face of these crises. Together, these actions will help build a groundswell of support for real climate leadership that looks at building back better, healthier, and safer.

Check out what our Pacific Climate Warriors have planned for the Matagi Mālohi, Week of Action.
