350 Chicago

 

350 Chicago was formed to bring Chicago-area citizens into the global climate movement that is 350.org. It serves as a space for Chicagoans to turn their despair into action and create hope for a habitable future on Earth.

We  envision a future without fossil fuels on a healthy, livable planet for all.  We share a passion for the environment, and we seek to connect with communities of like-minded organizations. And we take action locally on climate issues that are important to Chicago and the Midwest, including our primary campaign of Divestment.
