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:
It’s simple. If it’s wrong to wreck the climate, it’s wrong to profit from that wreckage.
Fossil fuel companies are driving the climate crisis and have successfully delayed action on climate change for decades. It’s time for our institutions to take a stand and divest from fossil fuels.
Join the movement
The fossil fuel divestment movement is worldwide and growing faster than anywhere here in Europe too. Get involved.
Thank You for Signing Up!
After less than half a year of campaigning NUI Galway students have been successful with the university committing to divest from fossil fuels shares by the end of 2017.
Earlier today Umeå University went public with its decision to divest from fossil fuels. When institutions like Umeå University make a decision to divest, they not only cut their own ties to the fossil fuel industry, but they also signal that it's unacceptable for public institutions to support fossil fuels any longer and open the political space needed to bring about the transition to a renewable energy future.
Well done to students and Fossil Free campaigners at both the University of Bristol and King’s College London. In both cases it took 3 years of creative, public campaigning, engagement with university staff and escalation to succeed. Now the hard work begins!
Just over two months to go till the Global Divestment Mobilisation and lots of new events popping up on the map. Let's take a look at some of them for inspiration on how to highlight the urgency of divesting from fossil-fuelled climate impacts.

Yesterday evidence emerged that oil giant Shell has known about dangerous climate change, caused by the burning of its fossil fuels, for over 30 years. We’ve been betrayed, lied to, and sabotaged by the fossil fuel industry for decades. That time is over -- it’s time to divest. Join the Global Divestment Mobilisation in May!
Global Divestment Mobilisation is 2 months away. Sign up for a series of online workshops and resources to support you in planning and taking action for divestment wherever you are 5-13th May.
How can the climate movement respond? Here are some of our ideas...
