Mission Statement

The mission of 350 Colorado (350CO) is to work locally to help build the global grassroots movement to solve the climate crisis and transition to a sustainable future. 350 Colorado has established itself as Colorado’s largest grassroots network focused on taking action to stop climate change.

Description

350 Colorado formed as an independent state affiliate of 350.org, a global organization building a movement to solve the climate crisis. Although we had been organizing events and growing since 2010, in 2013 we decided to organize as a nonprofit organization at the suggestion of 350.org in order to better support local 350 teams around the state financially and logistically and to more effectively address how Colorado contributes to and can help solve the climate crisis.

Science and social justice demand that we radically change the way our society contemplates, develops, and uses energy if we are to avert catastrophic global climate change. It’s clear that life as we know it is in peril due to climate change and that future generations and those least responsible for causing climate change will bear the brunt of the impacts. We believe that organized grassroots people power is the only way we can expect to counter the influence of the fossil fuel industry in our society. 350 Colorado is dedicated to achieving three primary organizational goals: Movement Building, Opposing Extreme Energy, and Promoting Local Solutions. Of these three, grassroots Movement Building is the most critical. It is the backbone of achieving success in all our other campaigns.
