350 Families, a project of 350 Eugene
We are parents who want to welcome everyone into the climate movement. Who better to work for a healthy climate than us? Our children’s future depends on it.
What We Do
We host youth and family-focused events to engage families in the climate movement!
So far we’ve hosted:
- Earth Day Art Shows : Our first Earth Day Art show contest in 2018 show-cased dozens of inspiring and creative art pieces at the downtown Eugene Library. In 2019, dozens of young artists contributed their beautiful work to the second annual Earth Day Art Contest at the Eugene Public Library in April and May. The awards ceremony was held on April 27. 350 Eugene Families and MECCA co-sponsored the event with MECCA supporting the kids in using recycled materials for their art.
- Back-to-School Clothing and Supply Swap 2018: Around 100 kids, parents, and grandparents came to swap clothes and school supplies, saving lots of money and resources. Big thanks to our partners MECCA and Forever Growing Resale for donating awesome items to start off the Swap.
- Kids Gravestone Making Workshop 2018: We hosted “The Graveyard We Want” workshop. Participants made gravestones for their front yards or windows with messages like, “RIP King Coal” and “RIP Fossil Fuels”
