What are local 350 groups?

Since 350.org began in 2008, local and national citizen-led climate activist groups have sprung up in communities around the world to organize for 350 days of action, and to continue mobilizing in their communities in an ongoing way.

We believe that a powerful global network of local movements working to stand in solidarity with one another is essential to stopping global climate change. Solidarity at the global level will transform our communities through popular education, grassroots organizing, and campaigning at the local level.

What 350 groups do locally will vary from place to place. They are led by those committed to building a global climate movement that embodies the basic principles in the 350 organising manifesto.

For a look at the campaigns that 350 Aotearoa and our local groups are championing, check out our Current Campaigns.

350 Auckland

350 Auckland is a local campaign group focused on pressuring institutions to divest from fossil fuels. We use education, civil disobedience, and nonviolent direct action to build the movement for a healthier climate.

Fossil Free University of Auckland

Fossil Free UoA is a student-led group formed in early 2015, supported by 350 Aotearoa.

Did you know the The University of Auckland is investing in coal, oil, and gas companies in the face of a global climate emergency? 

We demand the University of Auckland puts its money where its mouth is on social justice, sustainability, and environmental science, by removing its money from the fossil fuel industry.

Behind the scenes, this means pressuring the University’s Vice Chancellor Prof. Stuart McCutcheon — along with the University Council and Foundations — to endorse and implement fossil fuel divestment.

It’s time for The University of Auckland to show true commitment to sustainability. We are a student-led campaign demanding that Vice-Chancellor Prof. Stuart McCutcheon actively supports divestment from coal, oil, and gas, #ForAllOurFutures.

This means supporting the struggle for fossil fuel divestment – in other words, getting money out of fossil fuels. We want institutions like banks, universities, and KiwiSavers to withdraw all investments in oil, gas and coal.

350 Christchurch

Fossil Free Aoraki

Christchurch’s newest climate action group, Fossil Free Aoraki, is starting its first campaign: to switch Fonterra from coal to renewables for drying milk. Fonterra is Aotearoa’s second largest user of coal, so this change will make a massive difference to our climate, but they need our help to kick the habit.
