All over the world

Together, we will show that we are a truly global and growing force to be reckoned with.

As the fossil fuel industry throws more money at fossil fuel expansion, we will turn up the volume of our divestment movement. And we won’t stop until we win.

Join us for Global Divestment Day on February 13 and 14 and together, let’s make fossil fuels history.

Here's a flavour of what's already planned across 5 continents globally:

University and college students will hold flash-mobs, vigils, sit-ins and rallies calling upon their endowments to invest in a liveable future.

Individuals will close their accounts with banks and pension funds investing in climate chaos.

Faith leaders and people living on the front line of climate change will band together to urge their communities to divest from climate destruction.

In financial capitals, people will gather for colourful rallies calling on investors to break up with the fossil fuel industry and sever their ties once and for all.

Join us for Global Divestment Day on February 13 and 14 and together, let’s make fossil fuels history.
