It’s a global movement that aims to “end the age of fossil fuels and build a world of community-led renewable energy for all.” It does so by leveraging power where it’s most effective — in local communities. They bring those communities together, connecting them in a “global movement, that shares tools, tactics and an exciting vision for our world.” They campaign to “take away everything the fossil fuel industry needs to grow and survive: their social license, their political license, and their money. We organise in our communities to stop or ban new coal, oil and gas infrastructure”, and “organise and focus the huge public support for renewable energy into actionable commitments by our local institutions for 100% renewable energy.”
