In 2016, the European Greens campaigned intensively for divesting from fossil fuels and I have been designing that campain.
Activists are struggling for companies and institutions to withdraw their investment from climate killer companies. Divesting from fossil fuels means cutting the financial ties to the fossil fuel sector. Instead of providing financial resources to its destructive activities through buying or holding shares, bonds, or other investments in this industry, the fossil fuel divestment campaign calls for a stop of such investments and for the de-investing, the selling of fossil assets.
The European Greens increased public awareness on divestment issues, working together with their member parties in running divestment campaigns and provide ideas and information for individuals or local groups on how to act on divestment in practice.
