Rise for a fossil free Africa!

In May, we mobilized across Africa to #BreakFree from fossil fuels and push for a renewable, #FossilFree future. This September, we’ll do it again – joining hundreds of other local actions taking place across the globe.

Now we need ambitious local leadership to build the world we want to see. We need local governments and institutions to divest, and to plan a just transition to renewable energy, now. 

#RiseForClimate is bringing together hundreds of partner organisations, local organisers and regular people from all corners of the globe. Will you join us?

Global Coal Plant Tracker

The Global Coal Plant Tracker provides information on all existing coal plants of 30 MW or larger, as well as every plant proposed since January 1, 2010. The tracker uses a two-level system for organizing information. Summary information including location, status, sponsor, size, and carbon dioxide emissions is found on the maps and table. For further detail, each unit shown on a map or in a table is linked to a wiki page on SourceWatch..

 

 #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!

There is an urgency to unite grassroots anti-coal struggles and speak with one voice as we challenge the power of coal corporations and their supporters. We need to make the links between the push for coal and colonisation clear. We are calling on people to join us to “deCOALonise Sub-Saharan Africa”.  This platform aims to connect continental fights to stop coal development.
