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

9 October 2018

In a dramatic show of people power, an estimated 50,000 people gathered on Saturday (6 October) to defend Hambach Forest and the climate.

Under crisp sunshine, they demanded an end to coal in Germany, a clean climate, and the protection of the ancient forest at threat from coal mining expansion.

Last Saturday (6 October), as top climate scientists were putting the final touches to the latest shattering UN report on climate science, 50 thousand people were demonstrating against the expansion of one of Europe’s biggest, dirtiest coalmines.

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.
