We believe in a safe climate and a better future — a prosperous and equitable world built with the power of ordinary people, driven by renewable energy and rooted in justice. Now everyone who believes this can start and win campaigns to protect our common future.
What is 350 Community?
An open platform available to everyone who wants to make a difference.
You can focus on campaigns in various areas, like promoting renewable energy, stopping dirty energy sources like fossil fuels, or raising awareness about the devastating impacts of climate change.
Why should I use 350 Community?
We'll help promote your campaign to our network of climate activists, give you strategic consultation on media and grassroots organising, and offer specialised support.
When creating a good campaign, remember to focus on the right targets, aim high, be timely and compelling, and tell a hopeful story. And don't worry, we won't allow anything defamatory, discriminatory, or illegal.
Can I send messages to people who sign onto my petition?
After people have signed onto your petition, you can send them relevant email messages about your campaign. You can send them a follow-up to ask them to join you for a petition delivery, or to let them know the latest status of your campaign. These messages are moderated to ensure that they are relevant to the recipients – so we ask that you only send people messages related directly to your campaign or related grassroots climate activism.
How do you decide which campaigns go on the homepage?
Several factors contribute to what campaigns are highlighted on the homepage. These include campaigns that are on the edge of winning, campaigns that have shown rapid growth and campaigns that are particularly timely.

How will signing petitions make a difference?
Petitions provide a valuable snapshot of the level of public support for an issue and put forward a list of people who all share a common commitment or concern to climate action. And they don’t always need a big number to make a big impact – think about a local issue where a petition of 100 people would require someone to sit up and take notice.
Petitions can be the catalyst for conversations that change how people think about the climate crisis. They can spark conversations with your friends, family, colleagues, neighbours, church group, school, fellow consumers, local club; political representative or business leader. It’s most effective when you make a point of delivering your petition to your target in a personal, high-profile or creative way, explaining why supporters feel the way they do. But we’ll be honest: it probably won’t do much if you just start a petition and walk away.
