New Campaign from


Here is an international call from the


2012 was the year of Hurricane Sandy, Typhoon Bopha, and unprecedented droughts and wildfires the world over. Global food prices rose by 6% and we hit 333 consecutive months of above-average temperatures, as half the Arctic ice disappeared into the ocean.

In short, 2012 was the year of extreme weather and climate change. And that's why 2013 must and will be year zero in our fight against it.

This will be the year we look back upon when everything changed -- when we rose up to meet the challenge of climate change at the scale that it required, and the world rose with us.

Already, we've begun to ramp up in a big way. The Fossil Free divestment campaign has rapidly spread to over 200 college campuses across the U.S. and we're not stopping there. Soon, this divestment campaign will be in Canada, Europe, and beyond.

This June, 500-600 of the most capable and fired-up youth leaders from around the world will be meeting in Turkey to spark a Global Power Shift. The basic plan is this:

  1. They’ll train in grassroots and digital organizing, share their stories, and chart an aggressive strategy for the coming year
  2. Attendees will then return to their home countries in teams to organize mobilizations
  3. These national or regional events will be launchpads for new, highly-coordinated campaigns confronting the fossil fuel industry and promoting strategic solutions to climate change

From there, we will continue to grow bigger and gain steam until -- town by town, and country by country -- we come together to win the kind of planetary transformation that this climate crisis demands.

Pledge to shift the power here.
