That’s the banner that will be strung across Manhattan Ave in downtown Manhattan Beach next week to herald our South Bay 350 Climate Action Group event on the beach as our part of the International Day of Climate Action. It’s thanks to our host city of Manhattan Beach and our wonderful partners at the South Bay Environmental Services Center.
And here’s the banner that will be stretching across Highway 1 at Marine Avenue courtesy of our great allies at Surfrider Foundation
We’ve got the entire South Bay fired up, ready to go! And we’re reaching out to all 10 million citizens of the County of Los Angeles. These are YOUR beaches, this is YOUR time, this is the issue of YOUR generation. Join us and lets stand shoulder to shoulder to take action for our children and their children!
That’s why the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors unanimously voted yesterday to pass a resolution declaring October 24, 2009 “International Day of Climate Action” for L.A. County. Check it out after the jump.
Huge thanks to Supervisor Don Knabe and his great Deputy, the South Bay’s own legendary volleyball and beach lover, Steve Napolitano!
Steve gets it and made this resolution happen for us as soon as we asked. That’s climate change leadership, right here, right now.
One thought on “350 Climate Action – South Bay Style! The Whole World is Watching…”
Don Knabe rocks! Are any of the Supes going to be at the event?
From the Greenius:
Melonie, you know that everyone attending the event on October 24, 2009 at 3pm at the Manhattan Beach Pier is pretty Supe to me!
It’s my understanding that Supervisor Ridley-Thomas will be there at minimum. But truth is with two weeks still to go, these things tend to be pretty fluid – especially when an event is growing as exponentially as this one is. Folks who didn’t think they’d be able to make it when we first asked certainly enjoy the prerogative to change their mind and their schedule 🙂
