10/10/10:  It’ a date you can’t easily forget, and a date organizers hope world leaders will remember when they head to the next round of climate talks next month in Cancun.

10/10/10 is a Global Work Party celebrating local climate solutions.  So far, local organizers have registered 5511 work parties in 181 countries.  Volunteers around the world will be planting community gardens and trees, offering free bicycle repairs, weatherizing buildings and, of course, installing solar panels.

Sungevity has had 10/10/10 on the calendar for a long time.  We’ll be in the Maldives installing solar panels on the roof of the President’s home.  Visit this blog next week for continuous coverage of the Solar on the Maldivian White House installation.

What are you doing on 10/10/10?  Find work parties in your home town at 350.org.  The more people who participate, the stronger the message to Washington, D.C.: “Here’s what we’re doing about climate change–what are you doing?”
