350NYC350NYC is a local affiliate of 350.org, a global grassroots network of local groups in over 188 countries working to solve the climate crisis since 2008.

350NYC focuses on local campaigns in New York City and New York State as well as global climate campaigns.  We host and participate in events, meetings, rallies, art builds, and protests in coalition with allied organizations for a sustainable future for everyone.

350NYC is an all-volunteer organization that is run by a steering committee and four working groups: one to divest New York pension funds from fossil fuels, one for local sustainability solutions and climate education, one for props and art-work for our actions, and one for web and media.

Why the name 350?  350 is the number of parts per million of CO2 in the atmosphere we need to return to in order to preserve our future. Though we were below 350 ppm up until the 1980s, we are now over 400 ppm and rising due to excessive burning of coal oil and gas. (More on the science of 350).   

History

350NYC was founded in 2011 by singer-songwriter/filmmaker Lyna Hinkel after she was sent by 350 National to a leadership training with 13 other activists from around the country. After the training everyone went back to their home cities and started their local 350 groups. In 2011, it was hard to find news coverage about climate change and though we’ve come a long way since then, so has the climate crisis.
