Is your school getting in on the action???

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

On this day in Dunedin, head down to the Railway Station and taste some yummy treats (and get in on some great gardening freebies / advice) for the Spring Food Festival (email dunedin350@gmail.com if you, your family or friends are keen to help out)!

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 schools@350.org.nz 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!

(Gosh we’ve added a lot of exclamation marks on this post, but we’re just so excited about this!!!!)
