On October 24, people in 181 countries came together for the most widespread day of environmental action in the planet's history. At over 5200 events around the world, people gathered to call for strong action and bold leadership on the climate crisis. The level of participation has been truly inspiring!

Here on Gabriola Island, students and other community members took part in a 350 Day at the local elementary school, where students sang the "350 Get Down" and talked about ways we can all reduce our carbon footprint.
