WinWindNY: Let's Keep the Momentum GOING!
Saturday, April 9th @5:30pm
1335 6th Ave (@ 54th St)
For more info: Facebook Event
Join us today, April 9th, to tell Mayor de Blasio to make an Earth Day commitment to bringing offshore wind power to New York City.
The campaign to bring offshore wind power to New York is picking up speed and the wind is at our backs! In February, more than 150 of us came out to the steps of City Hall to call on Mayor Bill de Blasio to make offshore wind a key part of his climate agenda. The very next day, on WNYC radio, the Mayor spoke about the importance of developing offshore wind for the Big Apple. Now it’s time to build on our momentum and keep him accountable.
It’s time to #WinWind for NY!

"Cowspiracy: The Sustainability Secret" (90min)
Saturday, April 16th @ 1:30pm - 3:30pm
at PATAGONIA Soho store, 72 Greene Street, NY
Presented by 350NYC Climate Education Working Group
Cowspiracy: The Sustainability Secret is a groundbreaking feature-length environmental documentary following intrepid filmmaker Kip Andersen as he uncovers the most destructive industry facing the planet today – and investigates why the world’s leading environmental organizations are too afraid to talk about it.
Animal agriculture is the leading cause of deforestation, water consumption and pollution, is responsible for more greenhouse gases than the transportation industry, and is a primary driver of rainforest destruction, species extinction, habitat loss, topsoil erosion, ocean “dead zones,” and virtually every other environmental ill. Yet it goes on, almost entirely unchallenged.

Discussion with Benjamin Barber
Saturday April 23rd @7pm
323 Sixth Avenue at West Third Street .
Premiere Screening of How to Let Go of the World and Love All The Things Climate Can't Change
Hosted by CivWorld, 350NYC and 350Brooklyn

In this compelling new film, Josh Fox continues in his deeply personal style, investigating climate change – the greatest threat our world has ever known. Traveling to 12 countries on 6 continents, the film acknowledges that it may be too late to stop some of the worst consequences and asks, what is it that climate change can’t destroy? What is so deep within us that no calamity can take it away?
