So, what is 350 all about?
350ppm is what leading scientists say is the safe upper limit of CO2 parts per million in the atmosphere. We’re at 392 and climbing, which is why we’re seeing more and more extreme weather events around the planet. Here in Maine, we’re uniting a mass movement for bold solutions that both lift up Mainers and cut down carbon — to be a national and global example for solving the climate crisis.

What guides our work:
We believe that everyone has a right to a secure, healthy and ecologically sound environment. Yet, our world is presently facing an economic, ecological, and social crisis of proportions never before seen in human history. The survival of life as we know it is at imminent risk from global climate change. The times demand that we build broad and unified social movements that are strong enough to confront and overcome the systems which have created this crisis, while assuring that this human right is reflected in policy and on the ground at the state and local level.
This perspective, known as Climate Justice, means acting in solidarity with the communities most immediately affected by the climate crisis, working for a just transition to a renewable society, and challenging inequalities rooted in race, class and gender dynamics, both internationally and in our own communities.
