We at GreenHeroes are inspired daily to take action. We do understand, however, that it can be hard to know where to dig in to solve complex challenges facing our planet.

One of the best ways we’ve found to take action is by looking around in our own backyards for ways we can make a difference. Sometimes the first step is to join in with others on a project or campaign.

As we wrote about last week on the GreenHeroes blog, we were excited about the collective action of thousands of people around the world on 10/10/10.

350.org inspired people from 7,000 communities in 188 countries to convene work parties in their own communities to fight climate change. Here is the video with some of the highlights of that important day.

Simple Changes Matter, and they especially matter when folks around the world do them at the same time!

We at GreenHeroes are very inspired by 350.org’s Global Work Party to celebrate climate solutions. The upcoming day of action is on 10/10/10 – just in time for our Canadian Thanksgiving!

What better way to bring your family together and give thanks than to join in one of the hundreds of work parties happening right here in Canada.

You can even form your own work party, get it listed on the 350.org website, send in pictures of your party and they will add it to their interactive online album.

What is 350.org all about? Scientists say that 350 parts per million of CO2 in the atmosphere is the safe limit for humanity. We’re currently at 390 parts per million.

Now, we might not be mathematicians, but that seems like a problem to us. So, what can you do? Get involved! As of right now, there are 6,077 events listed in more than 184 countries around the world.

GreenHero Sarah Harmer and her organization PERL have an action you can take right now to help save the Niagara Escarpment and its wealth of biodiversity. Just sign the petition, and ask your family and friends to join you. It only takes a minute, but again, Simple Changes Matter.

Watch the video below to learn more about 350.org.
