With your help, 10/10/10 is going to be the biggest day of practical action to cut carbon that the world has ever seen.

We're calling it "A Day to Celebrate Climate Solutions"--together we'll get to work in our communities on projects that can cut carbon and build the clean energy future.

But we won't stop there--we'll be using the day to pressure our leaders to Get To Work themselves by passing strong climate policies promoting clean energy and reducing emissions.

Thousands of people around the world have already registered their plans, including bike repair workshoppers in San Francisco, school insulating teams in London, waste-land-to-veggies-gardeners in New Zealand, and solar panel installers in Kenya.

It's a nice surprise and I'm proud to say that young Filipinos in Cebu has taken it into their own hands to fight global warming. Below is the excerpt from


Students are not waiting for their administrators to agree to green the campus, they are taking matters into their own hands. Dozens of students used their green thumbs today in a symbolic tree planting in a quarry site on the University of San Carlos campus in Cebu City, Philippines. The planting took place after a sit down meeting with the chairperson of the committee of the environment where the students laid out their demands for a bold emission cuts and innovative green programs on campus.

If you guys are free head on to the Marina beach this Saturday and participate. For more info please go to
