350.org Takes Its Name from NASA Research
Columbia University climate scientist James E. Hansen’s contention is
that atmospheric concentration of carbon dioxide above 350 parts per million
is unsafe and could lead to a climate tipping point.
350.org International’s goal is to reduce the levels of carbon dioxide in the Earth’s atmosphere
from over 400 parts per million to 350 parts per million.
350 is more than a number, it’s a symbol of where we need to head as a planet.

350Hinckley is a non-partisan group of environmentally concerned Hinckley, Ohio residents with a history of involvement in conservation and sustainability. We seek to utilize proven technology to advance Hinckley Township to a healthier more sustainable community.
Our primary focus is infrastructure with a secondary focus on supporting surrounding communities with community-based solutions.
We are not political.
Our work is grounded in the change we choose to see, and how we can best contribute to the larger movement.
Our group of ordinary 350 Hinckley residents meets monthly to discuss key renewable and sustainable solutions for the Hinckley community. Most of us are involved longtime residents of Hinckley Township.
Our initial goal is to sign-up 300 like-minded residents from Hinckley and surrounding communities to follow our lead and join 350 Hinckley as members.
All are welcome to join our advisory group.
Our members may be asked to sign petitions and are invited to attend important semi-monthly Trustee meetings at the Hinckley Town Hall and/or monthly Board of Education Meetings held at the high school.
We lead by creating awareness, encouragement and suggesting solutions.
Demonstrations, protests and civil disobedience are discouraged.
350Hinckley Does Not Accept Donations
We do not have a bank account or budget and no official non-profit status. We are supported by volunteers like you who offer their time and interest and are willing to share their knowledge.
