350.org Australia aims to rapidly end fossil fuels by building a global climate movement.
The number 350 means climate safety: to preserve a liveable planet, scientists tell us we must reduce the amount of CO2 in the atmosphere from its current level of 400 parts per million to below 350 ppm.
We believe that a global grassroots movement can hold our leaders accountable to the realities of science and the principles of justice. The movement is rising from the ground up all over the world and is uniting to create the solutions that will create a better future for all. 350.org Australia is a not-for-profit project helping build this movement from our corner of the globe.
Build a powerful climate movement in Australia.
Contribute directly to cutting-edge campaigns to address the climate crisis.
Today we celebrate a huge milestone in the worldwide movement to take down the fossil fuel industry that is driving the climate crisis:
Over 1000 institutions worldwide, worth almost 11 trillion AUD, have committed to divest from the world’s biggest oil, coal and gas companies!
In Australia just this week, Wollongong City Council announced that they would divest, adding their name to the list of 45 other councils with divestment motions in Australia!
By Glen Klatovsky, Deputy CEO 350.org Australia
Ongoing and burdensome attacks on environmental and climate advocacy are part of an ideologically-driven program being rolled out by conservative governments across the world with a very clear intent of silencing the voices of advocacy organisations.
As has been said many times, first they start with the greenies and then they go for any community voices they do not like.
While sea levels rise in the Pacific, huge droughts devastate and wildfires burn through Australia on a regular basis, a giant coal mine has been proposed right next to where Australia’s greatest environmental asset, the Great Barrier Reef, lies. Under the motto “We are not drowning, we are fighting”, Pacific climate activists are determined to stop it.
Community activist Bev Smiles doesn’t view the international coal giant Peabody Energy as just a faceless mining corporation. She calls Peabody her personal nemesis.
For more than 30 years Bev has lived in the picturesque village of Wollar, between Denman and Mudgee in the Upper Hunter. Once a thriving community, the town has changed irrecoverably since 2006 when the Wilpinjong coal mine was approved.
