FOSSIL FREE AFRICA!

In the fight for climate justice, from May 5-13, we’re calling on Africans to demand that their universities, faith-based institutions, and municipalities do the right thing: divest for a fossil free future.

DELAYING ACTION MEANS LOCKING IN TECHNOLOGIES, INFRASTRUCTURE AND BEHAVIOUR THAT WILL BE MORE COSTLY TO REVERSE AT SCALE LATER!

 

2016 was the hottest year on record, and the impacts of the fossil fuel industry are taking a higher toll on vulnerable communities in Africa. With a famine in East Africa protracted droughts and extreme heatwaves in Southern Africa and the devastating impacts of heavy flooding in West Africa, we know we are moving far too slowly in the face of rapidly increasing risk around climate change and fossil fuel investments.

This May, we’re taking action across Africa, and globally, to demand that individuals and our institutions do what is necessary for climate action by divesting from fossil fuels.

This moment presents an invigorated urgency and leadership to the movements partners in Africa, and an urgent challenge to our institutions to step into their leadership by divesting from fossil fuels and its impacts on people and the planet.

Join the Global Divestment Mobilisation – be the change now!
