There are trillions of dollars of our money on the table at the European Recovery Summit and G20 meetings this week, and we want a say in where it goes.
This is a time to be decisive in saving lives and bold in charting a path to a genuinely healthier and more equitable future through a just recovery. Learn more about the Just Recovery principles and our demands to G20 Finance Ministers.

Decisions made by rich economies will have a huge effect on the health and well-being of people around the world, particularly on those already on the frontlines of the climate crisis. We must challenge these countries when the global spotlight is collectively on them. G20 Finance Ministers and Central Bank Governors will meet on 18 July to “discuss and take urgent actions needed to address the global challenge presented by the COVID-19 pandemic.” The G20 are claiming to show leadership in responding to the pandemic.
This gives us the opportunity to voice our demands on what a Just Recovery should look like.
This is our money – and we should not leave it to a small group of ministers to gamble with – we should get people’s voices heard and start influencing these conversations as soon as possible.
Rich govts are putting trillions of our money on the table to tackle the recession, but billions are going into fossil fuels already. They need to choose: either more pollution and inequality or a truly #JustRecovery that leaves no one behind. We’re watching you!
#G20 Finance ministers meet this weekend and nearly 20,000 people have called on them to spend our public money on dignified, safe, and green jobs; affordable, green mass public transport; and affordable, sustainable housing. 350.org/g20 #JustRecovery
“Normal” was already a crisis, and we can’t go back to the way things were. Just recovery means re-building and re-tooling our economy in a way that works for everyone. It’s our money and it should fund our future – no more business as usual!
