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 vision is for a safe climate and a just, prosperous, and equitable world built with the power of engaged advocates.

A true honouring of te Tiriti
We believe in a future where tino rangatiratanga and mana motuhake is guaranteed to Māori; to the benefit of us as a collective society

Interconnected & safe communities
We believe in a future where we have strong connections in our communities, and everyone feels safe and included

A healthy Papatūānuku
We believe in a future where we ensure that our climate, air, rivers, moana oceania and land can thrive, creating a healthier future for all. Our communities will flourish when our relationship with Papatūānuku is restored.

Resilient & accessible infrastructure
We believe in a future where our ways of living and travelling happen sustainably and are accessible to everyone.

Alternative economic models for our society
We believe in a future where our economic systems can acknowledge our inherent interdependence with one another, whilst supporting everyone to live a comfortable life within the boundaries of a safe climate and thriving ecosystem.


Why we do what we do:

The science is clear: global warming is happening faster than ever and humans are responsible. The combustion of fossil fuels like coal, oil, and gas, emits carbon dioxide and other heat-trapping gases when burned, causing global warming and climate change. A change in just a few degrees in temperature can completely alter the world as we know it, and threaten the lives of millions of people around the world.
