Hamilton 350 Campaign Website
A group of volunteers in Hamilton is organizing events to promote the 350.org campaign. I agreed to put together a website for them.

|1||About the Campaign|
Hamilton is participating in a Global Day of Action on Climate Change on Saturday, October 24, 2009 as part of the 350 Campaign.
I'm responsible for designing and maintaining the website for the Hamilton 350 Committee:
The site design and colour scheme borrows shamelessly from the official 350.org site, though I tried to go with a much simpler, more streamlined design so visitors can easily find what they're looking for.
350.org is an international campaign dedicated to building a movement to unite the world around solutions to the climate crisis - the solutions that science and justice demand.
This December, world leaders will meet in Copenhagen, Denmark to craft a new global treaty on cutting emissions. The problem is, the treaty currently on the table doesn't meet the severity of the climate crisis - it doesn't pass the 350 test.
In order to unite the public, media, and our political leaders behind the 350 goal, we're harnessing the power of the internet to coordinate a planetary day of action on October 24, 2009.
We hope to have actions at hundreds of iconic places around the world - from the Taj Mahal to the Great Barrier Reef to your community - and clear message to world leaders: the solutions to climate change must be equitable, they must be grounded in science, and they must meet the scale of the crisis.
