Fossil free europe

network gathering 2016


  • Share and build our skills for campaigns so that institutions won’t be able to ignore us!
  • Build a cohesive Fossil Free strategy and stronger network across Europe (What do we want to achieve in our region and how can we work together to win?)
  • Strengthen our relationships, because together we are stronger and we all have skills, knowledge and resources to share with each other.
