On 13th & 14th February, there were over 450 actions in 60 countries marking Global Divestment Day, called for by the 'Go Fossil Free' movement. 

'Go Fossil Free' comes from the idea that educational and religious institutions, governments, and other organisations that serve the public good should divest from fossil fuels. Practically this means calling on instiutions like our schools and universities to immediately freeze any new investment in fossil fuel companies, and also divest from existing fossil fuel funding within five years.

Young Friends of the Earth Europe is a grassroots network of young people and youth organisations working collectively for social and environmental justice on a local, national and European level. We organise events and inspire young people to take action, on issues ranging from climate change, food and agriculture and education for sustainability – to ensure the voices of young people are heard in Europe and beyond.
