350 frisbees

On Saturday people from 181 countries all came together for an International Day of Climate Action. The idea behind it is that we will have a lot healthier and more sustainable world if we reduce the amount of CO2 in the air to 350 parts per million (it's about 390 now). Which is where the "350" bit comes in. Read all about it and see pictures from actions all over the world here. In one Brisbane event at the West End Markets, people threw 350 frisbees into the air to the beat of 350 drums (approximately, perhaps). I was at work so I missed it but luckily today's photo is kindly donated by MaryAnne Bland. Thanks MaryAnne!

interesting. My kids used to love playing frisbee (and now the grand kids). They all used to go down to the local oval on the weekend and play!

In Christchurch, New Zealand, one of the activities was "Frocks on Bikes" which was a really fun event - see photos on 24th October here.

There were 350 candles lit last Saturday for the programme launch of The Woodford Folk Festival (and let me tell you, chaps, the programme is just awesome- check the website www.woodfordfolkfestival.com)
