As the climate crisis wreaks havoc across the continent and beyond, fossil fuel companies are set to announce their quarterly billion dollar profits, made at the expense of people and the planet.

In view of this, 350.org is joining forces with frontline communities and grassroots groups across the world on 3rd and 4th November to hold widespread actions to rally political will around a global renewable energy revolution and call for the fossil fuel industry to pay up for its role in the crisis.

The actions will take place as part of an initiative by 350.org dubbed “Power Up”, which demands that governments across the globe shift money away from polluting fossil fuels (coal, oil and gas) and channel substantial investments to powering up a safe, just and sustainable future built on people-centred renewables.

Over 150 actions will be held across the globe, with 23 of them to be held in 11 countries across Africa.
