Grab your flashlights, candles and warm clothes. This Friday, December 11th, 2009 the HECUA* class
will be inviting concerned citizens of Minneapolis
to participate in a 350 Vigil to honor the changes that are being made in Copenhagen.
Before you RSVP I can provide a bit of background information: The term 350 comes from an international movement that inspires the world to
rise to the challenge of the climate crisis; to create a new sense of urgency
and of possibility for our planet. Their focus is on the number 350--as in parts per million, which is the level
scientists have identified as the safe upper limit for CO2 in our atmosphere.
But 350 is more than a number--it's a symbol of where we need to head as a
This vigil could not come at a more appropriate time, as it falls in the middle
of a very exciting climate summit happening in Copenhagen .
We will be lighting candles of hope to inspire our leaders to take serious
action against climate change. We will even be sending a video of our vigil to Copenhagen
for our leaders to see!
Please join us at the Stone Arch
Bridge (West River Road and Portland Ave) on Friday, December 11 from 7 - 8 p.m. for an inspiring night that works toward
SECIA Fall Intern
