From deadly floods in Libya, Hong Kong, Greece and Brazil to record temperatures in Antarctica, we are facing the direct consequences of reckless fossil fuel extraction.
But we have a key opportunity to help stop runaway climate change and protect our precious planet.
Central banks and financial regulators have the power to change the rules right at the top and cut off funding to fossil fuel projects.
Let's come together to demand that they adopt new fair financial rules and stop banks from funding these dirty projects-- add your name now:
Call on the central banks governors now to stop funding fossil fuels and save our future.
Banks are one of the key enablers for fossil fuels projects. They provide the money to build and maintain projects like coal mines. But if there is no money for this, there would be no coal mines in Europe, no crude oil pipelines in Africa and no mega-gas projects in the Arctic.
Entire livelihoods and ecosystems are being devastated in the name of immediate profit -- violating frontline communities’ most basic human rights and threatening our chance of a liveable future on our shared home, Earth.
Banks may seem like untouchable giants, but they abide by rules too and by changing the rules at the top, we can cut off the roots of the problem.
We can’t afford to keep extracting and burning fossil fuels, banks need to invest in sustainable energies and renewable energy projects. This meeting is a unique chance to get all regulators’ attention and influence the decisions. Let’s show them that thousands of people from across the globe are paying close attention to their votes and calling for a fair and just financial system.
Call on central bankers to stop bankrolling our destruction and adopt new financial rules that put people and planet over fossil profits.
The mobilisation against financial actors is growing -- from Uganda, Argentina, Australia, Korea, the USA, Switzerland, the Arctic, France, the UK… Frontlines communities, Indigenous groups, activists, NGOs, experts and YOU are facing insurers and banks to hold them accountable for their destruction.
We’re making them back off from entire fossil projects and adopt new fossil fuel exclusion policies. People power works!
Today, we can demand central banks adopt new financial rules that put people and planet over fossil profits. But we can’t do it alone:
Will you call on central bankers to stop bankrolling our destruction and adopt new financial rules that put people and planet over fossil profits?
