Letter from the Executive Director: May Boeve

Dear friends,

2021 was a turning point for the climate movement. We saw some big wins as fossil fuel projects lost financial backers in the face of serious community resistance. In April 2021, the International Energy Agency (IEA) released its annual Global Energy Review, Net Zero by 2050, which clearly stated that we must stop all new fossil fuel projects and manage the decline of oil and gas in order to attain a 1.5°C pathway.

In August 2021, the International Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) issued the first part of its sixth assessment report on climate change, sounding the red alert for the state of our planet and climate. The report clearly states, “Unless there are immediate, rapid, and large-scale reductions in greenhouse gas emissions, limiting warming to 1.5°C will be beyond reach.”

The science is clear, as it has been for decades. Finally, world leaders, governments, and finance institutions are starting to listen and take action. Throughout the Fiscal Year 2021 (FY21), we celebrated tremendous wins like the cancellation of the Keystone XL pipeline, and the coming together of activists, thinkers, artists, and more in the Global Just Recovery Gathering. What lies behind these victories we celebrate? People-power.

350 has worked for 13 years to build a powerful, diverse, effective climate movement that is making change every day at the local, regional and global level. In partnership with hundreds of organizations and coalitions around the world, and many thousands of climate leaders, we are winning.

It is thanks to you, our supporters, donors and partners, that we have been able to accomplish the impact you will read about in this 2021 Annual Report. We thank you for your trust, passion and generous support. As we continue our work for climate action and for global justice, we look ahead to this journey together.
