Wend’s Call to Kayakers for 10/24/09
In our October issue, we mention 350.org and their mission to make October 24, 2009 a day of activism to promote the signing of a new climate-change treaty at the UN Summit in Copenhagen this December. All over the world, people plan to make the message heard, whether it be through re-enacting 'Thriller' (complete with zombies!) in Seattle to marching in Amsterdam. Over at Wend, they're encouraging kayakers to gather some friends and use their kayaks to form the number 350 in prominent waterways. To read Wend's “Open Letter to Kayakers,” click here, and be sure to check out 350.org to see if there's an action planned near you — or, start your own.
