Who are we?
We are 350 South Florida and our mission is to build a future that's prosperous, equitable, just, inclusive, and safe from the effects of climate change through the elimination of fossil fuels. “350 South Florida” is affiliated with 350.org, an international non-profit that is building a global movement to solve the climate crisis. Growing stronger daily, the 350 family is active in 188 countries. This movement thinks and acts globally.
Why the name “350?”
Numbers are universal, and “350” refers to the parts per million that scientists consider a safe level of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere (last seen in 1988). We are currently at 415ppm (parts per million) of CO2 at a global level, the highest level for the first time in human history. We need to go back to 350ppm to prevent the catastrophic effects of the climate crisis (rising seas, extreme temperatures, intensified and more recurrent natural disasters, food insecurity, mass migrations, ecosystem services at risk such as clean air and water). 350 is our target if we want a safe environment for now and for future generations..
