350 is a global grassroots movement taking on the fossil fuel industry. Our vision is for a future that is just and equitable, with our communities and ecosystems thriving and protected from the impacts of climate change.
We believe that the only way we’ll see meaningful action on climate change is if we can counter the power of big fossil fuel companies with the power of people taking collective action. We work with the global 350 movement and in solidarity with people on the frontlines of climate change.
Right now, we are running campaigns to stop the flow of money for new fossil fuel projects and amplifying Torres Strait Islander voices as they fight to protect their island homes from climate change.
