With the divestment movement now taking root on all 6 continents and the Global Divestment Mobilisation starting in less than two weeks, we’ve been working on an interactive timeline looking back at some of the key milestones achieved by the Fossil Free campaign since its launch.

It’s been less than 5 years since the idea of fossil fuel divestment first took hold. It’s now a rapidly-growing global movement that has transformed the narrative around keeping fossil fuels in the ground and persuaded over 700 mainstream institutions and thousands of individuals worth over $5 trillion to publicly break their ties with the fossil fuel industry.


Take a look at some of the milestones along the way and how each act of divestment at a local level is undermining the pillars of support than continue to prop up a reckless fossil fuel industry.
