SanDiego350 is building a movement to prevent the worst impacts of climate change and climate injustice through education and outreach, public policy advocacy, and mobilizing people to take action.

Over 3,500 students walked out of more than 20 schools on Sept 20 for the Global Climate Strike!!

Accompanied by over 1,000 parents, teachers, workers and retirees. Thank you to everyone who walked out or otherwise supported the effort.

See the news coverage and photos here and watch our wrap up video:

 

There are more walkouts this week, including San Marcos State on Tuesday, UCSD on Friday, and Vista City Hall on Friday. Check here for more information to participate in events open to the public.

COMMUNITY CHOICE ENERGY IS A GO!!!

Finally! Five city councils voted yes in September 2019 to initiate a joint Community Choice program and SanDiego350 members joined allies to support each of the votes. Community Choice will be moving forward in San Diego, La Mesa, Chula Vista, Encinitas and Imperial Beach. Thanks to everyone who signed the petition and turned out at council meetings!

There’s still work to be done after the JPA is approved to push for the CCE program to be super strong on climate, equity and labor provisions, but after over 4 years of work we’ve gotten most of what we wanted, and this is a HUGE STEP FORWARD toward a just transition to 100% clean energy.

Community Choice Energy is the key to getting the City of San Diego to 100% renewable energy by 2035.  CCE allows cities and counties to purchase power on behalf of their residents and businesses to provide renewable energy at a competitive prices while providing local control and local family sustaining clean energy jobs to our region.
