September 10,  7:00 pm, 350.org’s “Keep it in the Ground” campaign, Post Oil Solutions and the Climate Change Cafe will host a simulcast of this project’s major launch event. Originating from the Brooklyn Academy of Music, the event will be live streamed and will include such climate notables as Bill McKibben and Naomi Klein, as well as other voices from the global movement. The “Keep it in the Ground” campaign will shape much of 350.org’s work through the critical gathering of world leaders at this December’s COP 21 conference in Paris, where it is hoped that decisive actions will be taken to substantially reduce global warming. The idea is to use the September 10 launch to build up a clear global narrative and kick off the sprint to Paris.
