Help De-Pave Somerville on October 11

DE-Pave the Way to a Safer Climate!
Monday, October 11, 2010   10:00 to 4:00
a  350.org Global Work Party
and Somerville Climate Action event
co-sponsored  by Mystic  River Watershed Association and Groundwork Somerville
Next Monday, October 11th from 10:00am to 4:00pm, we will be De-Paving the Way to a Safer Climate!   We invite you to join us in what we hope will be the first of many "de-pavings" in Somerville.  This event is part of the 350.org Global Work Party.   As the planet heats up and the world awaits for heads of state to pass a science-based climate treaty that will bring us back to the safe 350ppm atmospheric CO2 concentrations as soon as possible (we reached 392ppm this summer), citizens across the globe will be rolling up their sleeves and getting to work in their communities, sending a message to world leaders that they, too, need to get to urgently get to work on climate change.  


In Somerville, we will be de-paving the backyard of 24 Maple Avenue (and possibly another site TBA) from 10:00am to 4:00pm in two hour shifts and will finish off the day with food, music, and cheer!  

Please let us know if you can participate (we need an exact head count to make this run smoothly!) by emailing vanessarule@gmail.com, and what shifts are best for you (10 to 12; 12 to 2; or 2 to 4).
