We can’t keep powering our lives with oil, coal and gas from the last millenium. We know it’s fuelling a worsening climate crisis.
On 8-9 September, it’s time to repower our communities with clean, renewable energy from the sun, earth, wind and water, back in the hands of citizens. Let’s stand up in our tens of thousands to show the world we will do what it takes to keep fossil fuels in the ground and build a Fossil Free world.
Will you rise up with others in your community to demand a Fossil Free world? We will gather outside our town halls, schools, government buildings, pension headquarters, museums, places of worship to demand:
Join tens of thousands of people around the world rising to this pivotal moment in history and start planning to take united, creative action globally on 8 and 9 September 2018.
Thank You! As we build towards 8-9 September 2018, you'll receive emails from 350.org with more information about ways to get involved in the Fossil Free movement where you live and how to start building local people power for the mobilisation.
We can’t keep powering our lives with polluting fuels from the last century that damage our climate, our neighbourhoods, and our lungs. The switch to renewable energy economies and a fossil free world is inevitable – but it’s up to us to make it fast and fair for our communities.
With national governments moving too slowly, cities and mayors from around the world will gather for the biggest event the world has seen to foster local action on climate change – the Global Climate Action Summit. But we know only people can power real change.
So the weekend before the summit, on 8-9 September 2018, a global movement is rising in our villages, towns and cities everywhere to show our determination to create a Fossil Free world together. We will keep fossil fuels underground and secure a faster and fairer transition to a 100% renewable economy that puts the energy system back into people’s hands.
The world is at an historic crossroads, on a fast-heating planet. We are experiencing the impacts of climate change all around us. As fossil fuel billionaires greedily line their pockets, our communities suffers from stronger hurricanes, floods, and droughts, polluted air, and soaring energy bills.
It is necessary and doable to switch to a cleaner renewable energy future. But it’s being blocked by a dangerous and dying fossil fuel industry elites that don’t care about our communities or their workers, and governments that are too corrupt or too slow.
Ahead of the next round of global climate talks in Poland in November, local governments and business leaders are coming together for the biggest event the world has seen for local action on climate change, at the Global Climate Action Summit from 12-14 September.
But we don’t want more weak promises and unaccountable companies and wealthy elites to run our economies. We want a faster and fairer transition away from fossil fuels to a renewable, clean energy economy that protects workers, defends the most vulnerable, and gives people control over their energy system.
A massive people’s mobilisation for a fossil free world ahead of the Global Climate Action Summit will ensure our demands are front and centre, and ringing in our elected officials’ ears as they meet in California.
We are united in wanting a world where everyone can breathe clean air, access affordable energy, and lead prosperous lives free from the fear of the next climate disaster.
It will only happen if enough of us join together to create more ambitious and more just commitments. There’s never been a more important moment to build momentum where we are most powerful — the local communities where we live.
On 8-9 September we will rise together in our neighbourhoods to take action, telling the story of the communities we want, and showing governments how to follow our lead. We’ll connect all our local efforts globally to help make an unstoppable wave of people’s climate leadership – from our townhalls, to our schools, and places of worship.
Gathering in iconic places in our villages, towns and cities, we will use our creativity, our culture, our hope, our bodies, and our unity to show our leaders the fast and fair fossil free world we want.
Sign up to be the first to access resources and support and organising a local event.
Very simply, we are uniting to call for a fast and fair transition to a fossil free world, powered by 100% renewable energy for all. Of course, your specific local demands will vary depending on what’s happening in your community, town or city — and we know you will have the best ideas for what should be the campaign focus where you live.
