Did you know that 24 October was the International Day of Climate Action? The intention of this day, organised by 350.org, was to lift public awareness on the need for an international climate treaty to reach 350. 350.org called upon people from every corner of the globe to find an iconic place in their community and incorporate the number 350 with this place and take a photograph.

We received the following stunning photograph from Naomi at Outdoor Video and Photographic (OV&P). You may remember her husband, Dave Estment, whose fabulous photographs are often featured on this site.
Here’s what Naomi had to say about the day and this photograph: “Dave & I visited Cape Town recently with Hills of Africa Travel and we went up Table Mountain on 24th October, which happened to be the 350 Action Day. We came across a group of rock climbers who were hoisting flags, etc, for the event. Dave took a great photo of them from the cable car.”

On 24 October, people in 181 countries came together for the most widespread day of environmental action in the planet’s history. At over 5200 events around the world, people gathered to call for action on the climate crisis. Over 22,000 photos have been submitted so far!
Lots of AWESOME photographs!!
