350 Families, a project of 350 Eugene  

We are parents who want to welcome everyone into the climate movement. Who better to work for a healthy climate than us? Our children’s future depends on it.

What we do –

We host youth- and family-focused events to engage families in the climate movement!

Upcoming events:

Calling all kids! Participate in this year’s Earth Day Art Show 2019.  Share your ideas for climate solutions! (See our photo slideshow below from last year’s show.)

So far we’ve hosted:

  • Earth Day Art Show 2018: Our first Earth Day Art show contest showcased dozens of inspiring and creative art pieces at the downtown Eugene Library.

 

  • Back-to-School Clothing and Supply Swap 2018: Around 100 kids, parents, and grandparents came to swap clothes and school supplies, saving lots of money and resources. Big thanks to our partners MECCA and Forever Growing Resale for donating awesome items to start off the Swap.

  • Kids Gravestone Making Workshop 2018:
We hosted “The Graveyard We Want” workshop. Participants made gravestones for their front yards or windows with messages like, “RIP King Coal” and RIP Racism”
