Connect the Dots on May 5 at the Sustainable Living Fest
Record-breaking heat waves in Russia, wildfires in Australia, floods in Thailand. Every time we pick up the newspaper and read about another record-breaking natural disaster, it becomes increasingly clear that climate change is not a future problem — it’s happening right now.
Texas was greatly affected last year by the most severe drought in recorded history. The wildfires wiped out acres and acres of land and displaced thousands of people. Crops died out leaving many farmers jobless and hopeless. Do you agree that climate change is not all the way across the globe, but in our own backyard? Shoot it and show it!
Send us your Climate Change in my Backyard photos - be featured in a global campaign, an event video and at the Sustainable Living Fest in Market Square- and most importantly, help the world connect the dots!
Connect the Dots is a project of 350.org and our partner organizations, to shine a spotlight on the connections between extreme weather and climate change. We will use those connections to issue a wake-up call for our communities, the media, and our politicians.
