Climate Justice and Energy
Climate justice now.
Together, we can kick fossil fuels out of Europe.
We face a climate emergency.
People in the Global South, people of colour, women, youth, and those on low incomes – who have done the least to cause global warming – are disproportionately affected.
The scale of the challenge facing humanity cannot be underestimated. But we can still avoid the worst impacts, end the fossil fuel age and create a more equal society at the same time.
Europe bears much of the responsibility for causing historical climate emissions and must do its fair share to keep global warming below 1.5°C. This means an urgent and just transformation to a fossil free energy system by 2030 and support to countries in the Global South.
Across Europe, people are at the forefront of stopping dirty fossil fuel projects, building community-owned energy, and reducing energy poverty. Together, we can make a fossil free Europe happen!
