This evening, Bill McKibben (one of the founders of 350.org) will speak about climate change.

In the Integrated Design program students in the course IDC Lab: Media were asked to create 3-minute, 50-second soundworks that raise awareness about the number 350. Some questions they addressed include
…What can we describe through sound, and no other medium?
…What kind of attention do we have from a listener, and what are the various ways we can take advantage of that attention?
…How can sound spread the message of 350.org?
…How will you incorporate language if you are thinking of a global audience?
…What kinds of sounds are more global than others?
