Keep coal, oil, and gas in the ground

We have the solutions, it’s up to us to use them and achieve a better future. Let's break free from fossil fuels, and embrace a renewable energy revolution once and for all!

The dying fossil fuel industry is trying everything it can to stay relevant, as solar and wind become cheaper, more efficient and more scalable every year. Coal mines, oil fields, fracking wheels, pipelines and all kinds of fossil fuel structures have no place in our world and need soon to become just part of history!

Renewable solutions rooted in justice can transform society, providing access to energy, lowering bills and ensuring power to people and communities. They are affordable and available. We need to move resources from fossil fuels into scaling up renewables – and we need to do it fast! Fierce grassroots campaigns across the globe are targeting dirty fossil fuel developments and pressuring decision-makers to open the way for community-centered renewable solutions.

Join us! Together, we can make fossil fuels history and unlock the renewable energy future the world needs!
