Fossil Free Europe Delivering a just transition to a 100% renewable, no nuclear, super energy-efficient, zero-fossil-fuel Europe by 2030

25 June 2017

From the 21st to the 25th of June a climate camp took pace in the coal-mining town of Horní Jiřetín, located in north-western Czech Republic. It was organized by Limity Jsme My “we are the limits” — a local Czech movement and Greenpeace. It was also supported by Hnuti DUHA / Friends of the Earth Czech Republic. The goal of the climate camp was to enforce ecological mining limits and demand climate justice.

Friends of the Earth Belgium (Wallonia and Brussels) staged a symbolic ‘failed marriage’ today outside the cathedral in Brussels, decrying the merger between the energy provider, Lampiris and energy giant, Total.

The action was part of the organisations “Fossil Free, we change suppliers” campaign, in which the group are calling for renewable energy solutions in the hands of cooperatives and local providers, not multinational energy corporations.

The world is on track to global warming in excess of 3˚C, yet the commitments made by political leaders fall far short of what is needed to protect vulnerable and poor people across the world. But it doesn't have to be this way.

 

Friends of the Earth Europe is working to create the much-needed, fair and urgent transition to a fossil fuel free Europe by 2030. This means dismantling the fossil fuel system and creating the just, clean energy future that people want and need.
