Colorado Kayak Supply is announcing its sponsorship of the River of Action which will take place in Buena Vista, CO on October 24, 2009.
River of Action is part of the International Day of Climate Change, an initiative of the nonprofit 350.org, which aims to bring attention and action to the global warming crisis. The mission is to inspire the world to rise to the challenge of the climate crisis—to create a new sense of urgency and of possibility for our planet.
The gathering will take place at the Barbara Whipple Bridge at the Buena Vista Riverpark at 10:00-10:45 am on October 24. We will meet up for a photo and you will also have the chance to win give-a-ways from Keen, Colorado Kayak Supply and NRS. If you are interested in joining the local 350 gathering on October 24 go to 350.org or contact Colorado Kayak Supply at 395-8653. Please bring your kayak with you for the photo (not getting in the water).
What 350.org is:
350.org is an organization that works to educate people on the current climate crisis. The number 350 (350 parts per million) is important because that is the level that scientists have identified as the safe upper limit of CO2 in our atmosphere. We are currently sitting at 387ppm. We can make a difference--if we mobilize the world to swift and bold climate action, which is what we're planning to do on October 24th.
Every event around the world will highlight the number 350--and people will gather at some point for a big group photo depicting that all important message. At 350.org, we'll assemble all the photos for a gigantic, global, visual petition.
Please join us to get the word out about 350.org!
