About

350.org was founded in 2008 by U.S. author and climate activist Bill McKibben, who wrote one of the first books on global warming for the general public “The End of Nature,” and a team of students, including May Boeve, current Executive Director of the organization. The name, 350.org, was chosen to communicate an important quantitative target. 350 is the safe level of atmospheric CO2 in parts per million, according to climate scientists. Through 350.org, the team expanded to include young people from all over the world.

The 350.org network is currently working on the 3 demands of the fossil free campaign :

  1. A fast and just transition to 100% renewable energy for all

  2. No new fossil fuel projects anywhere

  3. Not a penny more for dirty energy

350 Taiwan is the affiliated group of 350.org in Taiwan. Like the global partners, 350 Taiwan connects both online and offline climate actions. The organization is formed on the bases to bring the topic of divestment into Taiwan. The aim is to have Taiwan join the global movement to move fundings away from fossil fuels to reduce more emission to solve the climate crisis.


350.org 是正在全球各地發起氣候行動、以解決氣候危機的國際環境非營利組織。我們在網路上的串連活動、草根性組織以及廣大公民行動,在全球超過 188 國活躍進行著。數字「350」是氣候變遷的安全指標,為維持一個適合居住的星球,大氣中的二氧化碳含量必須從目前高於 400ppm(百萬分之一)濃度降低至 350ppm。


台灣 350在2016年創立,主要目的為將撤資議題帶入台灣,讓台灣也能夠與國際同步,一同運用資本主義工具來改變資本社會的氣候變遷問題,讓金錢能夠從化石燃料產業撤資,減少更多碳排放。
