350.org is building a global climate movement. Our online campaigns, grassroots organizing, and mass public actions are coordinated by a global network active in over 188 countries. 350.org works in almost every country in the world on campaigns like fighting coal power plants in India, stopping the Keystone XL pipeline in the U.S, and divesting public institutions everywhere from fossil fuels. All of our work leverages people power to dismantle the influence and infrastructure of the fossil fuel industry, and to develop people-centric solutions to the climate crisis.
Are you stressed out over climate change? Fed up with inequities within our economic system? Tired of money in politics stifling your voice? Are you enraged by social injustice, police brutality, and the lack of public funding for education and healthcare?
350Philly’s monthly meetings are an amazing hub for you to plug in to change-making.
Join us to learn how solutions to the climate crisis are actually humanity’s opportunity to right the wrongs of racism, poverty, and inequity. Come to learn about the work of the coalitions we support and get involved with an active committee where you’ll help foster the change you want to see in your city.

Founded by Bryn Mawr alumna Joanna Underwood, Energy Vision is a New York-based national nonprofit organization that seeks to “analyze and promote ways to make a swift transition to pollution-free renewable energy sources and to the clean, petroleum-free transportation fuels of the future.” The organization’s strategy is to educate the government, businesses, students, and other citizens about the environmental and economic risks of our current dependency on fossil fuels and to analyze and create awareness regarding cleaner, more sustainable alternatives, such as hydrogen-based fuels. Among Energy Vision’s top priorities is weaning the 10 million buses and trucks on U.S. roadways off of polluting diesel fuel.
Energy Vision uses media and the internet to generate visibility for pathways to sustainability by targeting areas with dense populations and high levels of vehicle-related air pollution, organizing workshops and giving demonstrations of natural gas-fueled refuse trucks to communities, and linking communities to companies that can help them plan fuel-switching initiatives.
Founded by former President Bill Clinton and based primarily in New York City, the Clinton Foundation convenes businesses, governments, NGOs, and individuals to improve global health and wellness, increase opportunity for women and girls, reduce childhood obesity, create economic opportunity and growth, and help communities address the effects of climate change. Under this umbrella, the Clinton Climate Initiative approaches the issue of climate change by increasing energy efficiency in cities, increasing the large-scale supply of clean energy, and working to stop deforestation.
The Clinton Climate Initiative achieves its goals through a multifaceted repertoire of projects, including investing in green energy in Haiti, reducing the carbon emissions of built environments by improving construction and maintenance standards and instituting an employee-based benefit loan program to help people retrofit their homes to be more energy efficient, and working with governments and local partners in Indonesia, Kenya, Tanzania and Guyana to develop sustainable forest management projects and measure forest carbon emissions.
Fellowships, internships, and volunteer opportunities are offered in conjunction with many of the Clinton Foundation’s projects and allow students to participate in research, communications, logistics, and technological support.
