350.org Pacific

350.org Pacific is a youth-led network based in the Pacific Islands. They are a member group of 350.org, a global movement which is acting to halt the climate crisis.


350 Pacific is a youth-led grassroots network working with communities to fight climate change from the Pacific Islands and diaspora.

350 Pacific works with organizers across 18 Pacific Island nations and diaspora communities in Australia, New Zealand, and the United States of America to highlight our island countries’ vulnerabilities to climate change while showcasing our strength and resilience of people. We work through existing networks and with a range of partner organizations who share in our vision for the Pacific and the planet. 350 Pacific has organized and facilitated workshops to educate and empower youth in the region, and through our many campaigns, have amplified the voices of frontline communities in the face of the climate crisis.

Founded in 2008 by author, environmentalist, and activist Bill McKibben, 350.org has grown from its humble beginnings into one of the world’s largest creative activism groups. 350’s campaigns, grassroots organizing, and mass public actions are led from the bottom up by thousands of individuals and volunteer organizers in over 188 countries. Together, we believe that action will bring us closer to climate safety, and a more sustainable climate system.


“There are still some who believe that climate change is a distant threat but for us, it is a present threat. It’s happening now and our people are being affected now” Hon. Tessie Eria Lambourne, Secretary of Foreign Affairs and Immigration for the Government of Kiribati.

350 Pacific marks another step in our journey. The people of the Pacific Islands are among the world’s most vulnerable to climate change, but 2014 marked the year that we begin to do something about it. It’s time for the proud people of the Pacific Islands to join forces with 350 to say enough is enough. We need to stand up against the Fossil Fuel industry, stand up against climate change, and show the world that it’s not prepared to sit back and wait for the tides to rise. It’s time to #StandUpForThePacific!
