If you havent heard yet – the 350.org day of international climate action is coming up on October 24th!! Whoa thats super soon….

However, the day before this is the 350 Aotearoa Schools action day – yes, thats right, a separate day JUST for you guys to come up with something awesome to blow everyone in the country (and the world) away!! Youve still got heaps of time to get going, so go to the site now and download the action guide and poster and make sure you email email@example.com to register your schools action!!
If your school has already planned something, add it here as a comment so other people can see your ideas!

Find out more here – youve got until Monday 14th of September to enter!!!
