Beyond the COP: 2018's Upcoming Climate Campaigns

Climate leadership is already underway worldwide: the people will bring the Paris Agreement to life


The call for a just transition from fossil fuels to 100% renewables for all can no longer be denied. Over the past few days, we have witnessed communities demonstrate what real climate leadership looks like. Governments have heard us loud and clear but they still aren’t willing to do enough.


Keeping to the Paris Agreement means keeping all fossil fuels in the ground; while official delegations, under pressure from the industry, may find it hard to make the much-needed shift, the increasing momentum from non-state actors (cities, states, businesses, etc) is driving ahead real climate action. From the Pacific Climate Warriors fighting to keep their homes, to the U.S. People’s Delegation challenging the Trump administration with genuine citizens’ voices, and anti-coal German activists putting their bodies on the line to stop mining in the Rhineland, the global climate movement is leading the way out of fossil fuels towards the just transition we need.


We invite you to hear directly from the real Climate leaders, as they present a roadmap for building a future that is free from fossil fuels, from the ground up.
