Cincinnati Joins Most Widespread Day of Climate Action in History- 2000+ Events Around the World

Location: Fountain Square-Downtown Cincinnati at Fifth and Vine Streets

 

People from around Cincinnati will gather to rally and learn more about the state of climate change, and form a giant human 350 as part of the largest global day of climate action ever. The event, one of more than 2,496 rallies in more than 157 nations, is coordinated by 350.org to urge world leaders to take fast and effective action on global warming. This is the first global campaign ever organized around a scientific data point: 350 parts per million.
