There are droughts and water crisis happening on all continents. Today, on World Water Day, we look at the way climate change threatens the watter supply in Sweden, where access to safe water is taken for granted.
Fossil Free Europe
Fossil fuel companies have been driving the climate crisis and delaying action on climate change for decades.
From May 5 – 13, join thousands of people everywhere to highlight the impacts of our institutions’ investments in fossil fuels and demand they do the right thing: divest!
It’s simple. We need to keep fossil fuels in the ground to avert a climate crisis.
If it’s wrong to wreck the climate, it’s wrong for our universities, pension funds, places of worship, cities, museums and banks to profit from that wreckage.
Divestment campaigns are weakening the fossil fuel industry’s political and economic stranglehold over society. Every time a respected institution publicly breaks its ties with fossil fuels, we chip away at their power to carry out immoral business plans, and we open up space for just climate solutions to flourish.
The stakes have never been higher — our changing climate is leading to ever more dangerous extremes. Flood disasters have more than doubled in Europe in the last 35 years. Droughts, heatwaves and storms are causing more deaths. An unpredictable climate damages people’s livelihoods, from farmers losing crops to seasonal workers who rely on snow or sunshine.
This May, we’re coming together right across Europe, and globally, to escalate our campaigns for divestment. It’s time for our institutions to take the moral high ground and divest from disaster.
Join the Global Divestment Mobilisation — organise an action that helps to highlight the destructive climate impacts of your target institution’s continued support for the fossil fuel industry.
