"Inception" star Ellen Page has hooked up with the organization 350.org for this Sunday's Global Work Party — a day of action to move politicians to push through legislation on climate change.
The actress will be in Los Angeles, where thousands of people are expected to take part in "Ciclavia," when 7.5 miles of streets will be closed to cars and opened to pedestrian and bicycle traffic. The event is one of more than 7,000 planned in 183 countries.
"I'm tired of waiting around and listening to politicians argue; they need to stop talking and starting working," says Page in a PSA for the campaign. "Together we can show how it's done. This October 10th, join millions of people around the world for the 10-10-10 Global Work Party."
Organizers estimate that on 10/10/10 over 100,000 trees will be planted, over 100 solar panels will be installed, hundreds of homes and buildings will be weatherized, cyclists will ride over 1,000 miles, citizens will clean up at least 500 miles of coastline, and much more.
"People will be doing very practical things on 10/10/10," said 350.org founder Bill McKibben. "But they will also be sending a pointed political message. When they put down their shovels, many will pick up their cell-phones to call their leaders and say: 'We're getting to work, what about you?'"
