350 Aotearoa is the New Zealand arm of the international climate movement 350.org, which aims to unite the world around climate change solutions. Our mission is to inspire climate action in communities across New Zealand.
We launched 350 Aotearoa with the goal to inspire and engage individuals, communities, businesses and governments around climate change action and solutions. We run campaigns, provide education, inspiration, practical tools, creative ideas, and leadership to challenge our cultural acceptance of fossil fuels, and to get New Zealand and the rest of the world back on track to 350ppm and, consequentially, climate safety.
Principles, Strategies, and Goals
Internationally and here in Aotearoa, 350 is a climate justice organisation. We recognise that climate change is an issue of inequality – those who contribute the most greenhouse gases will not see the largest impacts of climate change. The people who lead our movements should be those with the most to lose from climate crises.
Our method of creating change is through grassroots, collective action. The most effective movements throughout history have been movements of people working together an sharing their strengths, rather than focusing on individual lifestyle and consumer changes.
