No Impact Project's 10/10/10 Climate Work Party!
Sunday, October 10, 2010 from 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM (EDT)
Join your fellow New Yorkers and take action to combat climate change!
On 10/10/10, 350.org is bringing communities together around the world to implement solutions to the climate crisis: from solar panels to community gardens, wind turbines to bike workshops. We'll tell leaders: “We're getting to work--what about you?”
We at the No Impact Project are joining green collar trainees from Sustainable South Bronx to paint a roof white, and we'd love for you to come! Dark roofs absorb a lot of heat, so by painting them with a special, lighter paint, we can use less energy to cool them. That means less carbon emissions! To learn more about the positive effects of white roofs, visit NYC Cool Roofs.
Please register above (you do not need to print out your ticket).
