This is a worldwide campaign to end the age of fossil fuels. We are a powerful movement of citizens around the world working to build a future that’s free from the destructive impacts of climate change, and free from the out-of-control corporations that caused it.
Tens of thousands of new people are set to join inspiring events on 8 September. That's lots of new people who will be excited to take local climate action together in the aftermath of Rise for Climate — so what can you do to absorb all the momentum and new people power into your local movement or group?
Make it easy for people to stay involved
Take some time before and after 8 September to plan at least one follow-up event that you can invite people to straight after Rise for Climate. Being quick to send out report back emails and photos/videos on your social media channels will help capture people's attention while there's still a buzz after Rise.
One month later, starting 8th October, we'll be inviting you and all these new people to take part in a simple, local action again.

It’s taken 6 years of movement-building and building coalitions in support of fracking bans, one municipality at a time, but today it’s official. The state of Paraná in Brazil has agreed to keep its massive shale reserves in the ground, forever.
OPEC called our movement ‘the biggest threat’ to the oil industry. But we’ve still got our work cut out for us. In this Fossil Free News, we look at buzz building ahead of the massive September 20 global Climate Strike and more campaign updates.
