Thousands are expected to take actions to fight, mitigate or prepare for climate change at this weekend’s 10-10-10 Work Party organized by 350.org.
More than 7,000 events are planned in countries around the globe. They include both the highly symbolic — President Nasheed of Maldives, which stands to be annihilated by rising oceans, will kick off the weekend by helping install solar panels on his official residence — to small, meaningful neighborhood actions. Some will install gardens; others will weatherize houses, plant trees at schools or clean up natural areas. There will be work events followed by play such as concerts and picnics.
