On October 24, FoEME took part in 350.org’s International Day of Climate Action. The world’s best climate scientists advise that the international community must stabilize the concentration of CO2 in the atmosphere at 350 parts per million in order to avert the worst consequences of global warming. To urge global leaders to remember this number at the next round of international climate talks in December, over 5,200 groups in 181 countries organized events around this number.
Here in Israel, Jordan, and Palestine, FoEME mobilized 300 concerned citizens from all three nations to create human chains of the digits “3,” “5,” and “0.” FoEME’s event took place at three different sites along the Dead Sea, symbolizing the importance of trans-boundary cooperation over shared natural resources and common environmental problems. Photos from the event, as well as from the other events all over the world, were projected in Times Square, New York all day on October 24, and were delivered to the United Nations on Monday, October 26.
Bill McKibben, founder of 350.org, commented on FoEME's event, saying; 'If there's any image that illustrates the ability of people to come together across political boundaries, this should be it.'"
