350 New Orleans is a volunteer climate activist group connecting our region to the international climate change movement led by 350.org. Our mission is to lend support to initiatives in New Orleans that raise consciousness and promote sound policy around climate change.
We exist because climate change poses unprecedented threats to life, and coastal Louisiana is especially vulnerable. Rising seas, hotter temperatures, and stronger storms have grave implications for the futures of our coasts, communities, and cultures.
We prioritize locally-grown initiatives over national ones, and collaboration over working alone. We recognize and seek to amplify the power of existing New Orleans- and Gulf-based groups working for climate justice in their own communities.
