Saturday 5th May was 350.org's Global Climate Impacts Day to help Connect the Dots between climate change, the increasing frequency of extreme weather events, and the damage already being caused to people and places around the world (www.climatedots.org).

This event was supported by Environment Tasmania, Climate Action Hobart and the Australian Youth Climate Coalition, and Doctors for the Environment and local Greens politicians were there, too.
