Defund Fossil Fuels – a Webinar

Across Europe, people-powered movements are organising to prevent the roll out of new fossil fuel projects. In this webinar, we’ll unpack key frontline infrastructure battles, explore why current fossil fuel sector and political contexts are ripe for finance campaigns, and discuss an upcoming mobilisation on 15th September 2018.

In addition to the mobilisations, protests, camps and actions taking place this summer, 350 is developing defund strategies to remove the financing that makes new coal and gas projects possible – and to continue the de-legitimisation of fossil fuel interests.

We’ll explore and understand how to build a winning strategy for finance campaigners, within the Fossil Free decentralized model. With the scaling up of the Fossil Free campaign, and the ramping up of several iconic infrastructure campaigns around the globe, cutting off the finance to these projects provides an additional strategy for climate justice organisers.
