In Europe, we’re best placed to support your local organising on divestment and de-sponsorship right now. If you’re thinking of starting a new campaign, we think this would be the best place to start. But in other countries around the world, the Fossil Free campaign is starting to broaden its focus and adding some new campaign opportunities. If you’re keen to get an early look at these or test one of the new campaign ideas in your area read more below, visit gofossilfree.org or get in touch with us at email@example.com. It would be great to hear from you.

Climate change isn’t just an environmental issue, or a social justice issue, or an economic issue — it’s all of those at once. It’s one of the biggest challenges humanity has ever faced, and we’re going to have to work together to solve it.
This movement actively welcomes the talents, energy & commitment of all individuals volunteering their time, regardless of their background, ethnicity, religious or spiritual belief, gender and sexual orientation. We react immediately against hate and discrimination.
Each group has the power to decide its own organising, facilitation, decision-making, communications, tactics and actions. We’re all responsible collectively for making sure we live up to our values and shared organising principles.
Taking action is how we build public support behind our cause. And we recognise the importance of escalating those actions when our demands aren’t met.
We are committed to maintaining non-violent discipline in all of our actions. We support those who take direct action and respect those who are not in a position to take part. We encourage a wide range of tactics — it strengthens our movement.
