Featured Event
  International Day of Action for Climate Solutions
Sat, Dec 6, 2008   12:00 PM
Crissy Field
San Francisco

While it might be getting cold outside, things are really starting to heat up with global warming. This December, world leaders will be meeting in Poznan, Poland for the UN Climate Change Conference to decide the next steps on tackling global warming. That's why on December 6th people throughout the world are joining in for an International Day of Action for Climate Solutions.

In the U.S., we'll be holding rallies and taking photos at iconic locations in over 30 cities to send a message to President-elect Obama that the American people support strong action on global warming.

What better way to send that message than with a massive 30 by 50 foot postcard -- letting our world leaders know that here in San Francisco we're ready for climate solutions! And, they'll know it's from us because we're posing in front of the Golden Gate Bridge.

We'll have a few speakers, then we'll take a massive group photo with our custom made 30 x 50 ft. banner. The very next day, Greenpeace activists in Poland will deliver the photos of OUR rally to climate negotiators, sending the message that Americans are ready for climate solutions.

Show President-elect Obama you're serious about global warming and RSVP for the day of action in San Francisco today.
