Fossil Free is a movement to build a world where everyone can drink safe water, breathe clean air and lead prosperous lives free from the fear of the next climate disaster.
To build that world, we need bold action at all levels of government — and right now, starting from the ground-up is our best shot at securing lasting change. We will galvanize public support across the country by passing local Fossil Free resolutions demanding a ban on new fossil fuel projects and 100% renewable energy for all. Together, we can build a movement for a fast and just transition to a fossil free world.
To combat the scale of the climate crisis, we know we need bold action at all levels of government. To secure lasting change at the highest levels, we need to mobilize millions of people, score hundreds of wins at the local level and pressure politicians to be on the right side of history. The campaign phases below lay out our plan to do just that.
