We are a group of Kingston area citizens committed to taking action on climate change. We recognize climate disruption as a global crisis that is having a disproportionate effect on vulnerable communities around the world and we believe that local activism is one way we can seek to make positive change. We’re currently focusing on local government and participating in national and international campaigns.
This group originally formed in preparation for the Global Climate March on November 29, 2015, for which we successfully organized a rally of 400+ people in downtown Kingston. We continued to meet roughly twice a month with about 10 core members through the start of 2016. Consistent involvement dwindled in the fall, so at the start of December we had a climate organizing potluck, which ended with a high amount of energy and commitment, and a unanimous decision to continue getting together in the new year.
350 Kingston has several working groups that focus on different goals and campaigns both in Kingston and across Canada. Each working group has a liason that ensures collaboration and communication with the larger group. If you’d like to be involved in a specific group please email firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll put you in touch with the liason.
