The founding goal of 350 Martha’s Vineyard Island is to facilitate collaboration to address climate change. We recognize that the Martha’s Vineyard Commission holds a unique position of opportunity and responsibility for how the challenges posed by climate change are handled.

More than 200,000 people are expect to converge on Central Park West in New York city on Sunday for the People’s Climate March. At least 22 of them will be from the Vineyard. Buses traveling to the march from Cape Cod are already full with a wait list.

Activists from Cape Cod who are pushing for the closure of the Pilgrim Nuclear Power Station in Plymouth brought their cause to the Island at a public forum early this week. Fukushima was a wake-up call, they said.

Leaders of the new organization 350 Martha’s Vineyard Island (350MVI) will be guests at the monthly meeting of the Democratic Council of Martha’s Vineyard.
