We are your local network for grassroots activism on climate change issues. We act locally. “350 South Florida” is affiliated with 350.org, a non-profit that is building a global movement to solve the climate crisis. Growing stronger daily, the 350 family is active in 188 countries. This movement thinks and acts globally. Why the name “350?” Numbers are universal, and “350” refers to what scientists consider a safe level of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere (last seen in 1988).
In 2013, the global CO2 level surpassed 400 ppm (parts per million) for the first time in human history. We are engaged in the fight of the century. 350 South Florida is firmly committed to non-violent social change. Membership is open to all, and it implies a commitment to non-violence and the acceptance of the equality of all other members. Actions will be announced as they develop. We invite you today to join the online conversation on ourFacebook.
This past year we have seen a wave of attacks on the environmental and social justice movement.

350 is building a global grassroots climate movement that can hold our leaders accountable to the realities of science and the principles of justice.
That movement is rising from the bottom up all over the world, and is uniting to create the solutions that will ensure a better future for all. Our online campaigns, grassroots organizing, and mass public actions bring together a global network active in over 188 countries. Here’s how we get there:
1. Keep carbon in the ground. 2. Help build a new, more equitable low-carbon economy. 3. Pressure governments into limiting emissions.
