10 10 10 - Ten-Hut!

Nothing like a good TEN-HUT to get everyone's attention.  10 10 10 - which reduces to a single digit 3 - will not be a number sequence seen again for a hundred years and it was refreshing to see that the occasion was going to be commemorated with a Global Work Party - A Day to Celebrate Climate Solutions.   
Because our work is online we have witnessed and been invited to participate in quite a few global events that have happened on auspicious days over the years but we think this is the first one that we remember that was a 'work party' for the planet.  We went to 350.orgs website to check out all the registered events and we were amazed at the creative variety and scope of this initiatives efforts.  

There was a simple 10 Step Guide to planning your work party in the resource section and these were some of the top ideas for 10/10/10 activities:
