350 EARTH: A Global Scale Art Project


Consisted by monumental instalations created in several countries, the 350 Earth is a worldwide exhibit visible from space and is being documented by satellites moving at 17,000 miles per hour nearly 400 miles above the Earth, operated by Digital Globe.

Bringing together artists and other participants from across the globe, this global art project seeks to call the attention to everyone and especially to politians about the need to take effective measures to preserve our planet and its species.

350 EARTH will take place on the eve of the next United Nations Climate Change Conference in Cancun, Mexico where delegates will work to create an international climate treaty.

Founded in 2008 by Bill McKibben and a team of college friends, the 350.org is named after the goal of reducing the concentration of carbon dioxide in our atmosphere from its current level of 390 parts per million to below 350 ppm, what scientists say is the safe upper limit for the planet.
