Global Day of Climate Action

Nearly 100 elementary students from Our Lady of Malibu joined together to form the number ?350? to honor Global Day of Climate Action.

Malibu residents and students on Oct. 23 participated in International Global Climate Action Day to raise awareness, call for strong action and leadership for the climate crisis.

Our Lady of Malibu students joined the global movement by meeting in the school parking lot and forming the number 350, which scientists say is the safe upper limit for the parts per million of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere.

“This event generates momentum, a call to action, not just in the USA Senate or at the UN’s Conference in Copenhagen, but for each of us,” Malibu resident Suzanne Maxx said in a press release. “It’s time to become more aware of, and start to take personal responsibly for our environment. This resonates true for many people, as we witness the length and breadth people went to globally to participate all around the world.”

The launch of Our Lady of Malibu School’s new computer building, that burned down in the 2007 Malibu Canyon fire, took place the same day. The new building includes a solar roof campaign, which recently received its first donation.
