Fossil Free Europe Delivering a just transition to a 100% renewable, no nuclear, super energy-efficient, zero-fossil-fuel Europe by 2030

#ProtectOurFutures!

This was the slogan for the Days of Action of Friends of the Earth England, Wales and Northern Ireland. The network was quite busy last weekend: about local 130 groups took action and rumour has it that it was great! Here are a couple of stories from a very inspiring day.

October 14 was a creative day for Amigos de la Tierra/ Friends of the Earth Spain. For the Days of Action, the local groups decided to paint murals collectively. And because it is nicer to paint in music, many of these actions were accompanied by live concerts and other activities to denounce the lack of climate action coming from the government as well as their connivance with the fossil fuel industry.

The world is on track to global warming in excess of 3˚C, yet the commitments made by political leaders fall far short of what is needed to protect vulnerable and poor people across the world. But it doesn't have to be this way.

 

Friends of the Earth Europe is working to create the much-needed, fair and urgent transition to a fossil fuel free Europe by 2030. This means dismantling the fossil fuel system and creating the just, clean energy future that people want and need.
