People power setting Africa free from coal dependence 

Stay Informed!

 #DeCOALonise

Similar to the “Scramble for Africa” the push for the development of coal and fossil fuels in Africa is a new wave of corporate colonisation that profits corporations and the wealthy elite. Any new coal power plant will come at great cost: local environmental destruction, impact on the health of local peoples, and an intensification of the pace and impacts of climate change.

It’s time to come together and #deCOALonise Africa!

 

Why We Should #deCOALonise Africa




Show support

Nigeria ratified the Paris Agreement, demonstrating its willingness to avert further climate changes and reduce its carbon emission. Projections show that Nigeria will increase emissions to 114% by 2030 under the business-as-usual scenario.  This is why activists in Nigeria are calling for a ban on coal mining in Nigeria!

They’re calling on the Government of Nigeria to deCOALonise and leapfrog the country straight to renewable energy sources that will benefit millions of people.
