The 350 reasons quilt is a community art project to raise awareness about keeping our atmosphere here on planet Earth safe for life. Last year, the world's leading climate scientists determined that 350 parts per million CO2 is the most that our atmosphere can hold and still sustain life as we know it.
Currently, the atmosphere holds 390-- way too much. The quilt was created as part of a global movement (see 350.org) to make October 24, 2009 a global day of action to raise awareness of this most important number on Earth. In December, 2009, the world's leaders are meeting to create new agreements about how to work together on the climate crisis, and 350 needs to be the number they are working for.
Each panel of the 350 Reasons Quilt is a tribute to something that the person who created it loves about life on Earth. All sewn together, the quilt will represent 350 reasons to dedicate our energy, time and creativity to keep Earth's atmosphere below 350! It continues to grow and inspire people. Please participate by creating your own panel and bringing it or mailing it to the quilt project!
