13-14 February: Global Divestment Day!

13-14 February: Global Divestment Day!

On February 13-14, it is Global Divestment Day! There are actions organized in many countries. Check this website to see if there’s anything going on in your region or find out how to organise your own action.

As governments fail to take bold action to confront the climate crisis and fossil fuel expansion continues at an ever increasing pace, it’s time for us to take matters into our own hands. Last September hundreds of thousands of people took to the streets as part of the People’s Climate March, making history with our collective demand for climate action. Worldwide people are standing up to the interests of the fossil fuel industry knowing they are the biggest obstacle to tackling the climate crisis.

This is why we need you to join the growing divestment movement as thousands come together on February 13-14 for Global Divestment Day to take action and demand institutions and individuals do what is necessary for climate action by divesting from fossil fuels. On Global Divestment Day we will move our public money out of fossil fuels and call on others to do the same. Together we will directly challenge the social license of the fossil fuel industry and break the climate deadlock before it’s too late. Together, we will begin to make fossil fuels history.
