Join the People’s Climate Mobilisation
This September, world leaders are coming to New York City to talk about how to address the climate crisis. This is a crucial moment; we’re at a crossroads where we need real action, not words.
On the weekend 19 - 21 September, we’ll organise local events and actions to send a clear message to world leaders: we need to break free from the shackles of the fossil fuel industry in order to address the climate crisis. Divestment now!
Organise and register a divestment-themed event at your university or college and send in a photo to email@example.com.
Take part in an existing event in your local area - events are being planned all over the UK!
