350 Massachusetts for a Better Future is building a powerful statewide social movement to confront the climate crisis, hold our politicians accountable and undermine the destructive influence of the fossil fuel industry. Our name comes from 350 parts per million, the safe level of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere.
350 Mass is made up of several local volunteer-led chapters we call “nodes” around the state that carry out both municipal-level and statewide campaigns, coordinated by a Statewide Steering Team (SST).
Better Future Project created 350 Mass in June 2012 and continues to support 350 Mass. Although 350 Mass is closely aligned with the mission and values of 350.org, and partners with 350.org organizationally, it is not part of 350.org. More information on the relationship between Better Future Project and 350 Mass is here.
The 350 Mass charter lays out the network's basic structure and gives guidelines for decision-making. You can read the charter here!
