10/10/10: An Invitation to a Global Work Party on Climate Change is an international campaign dedicated to building solutions to climate change. As they point out:
"It’s been a tough year: in North America, oil gushing into the Gulf of Mexico; in Asia some of the highest temperatures ever recorded; in the Arctic, the fastest melting of sea ice ever seen; in Latin America, record rainfalls washing away whole mountainsides."

So they’re having a party:

"Circle 10/10/10 on your calendar. That’s the date. The place is wherever you live. And the point is to do something that will help deal with global warming in your city or community."

To find out more about 10/10/10, read the invitation.
