When it comes to going Fossil Free and accelerating the transition towards renewable energy, mayors, governors, councils and city bosses have as much opportunity for real climate leadership as national governments – and more direct influence.

The way we build hope in dark moments such as these is through action. Across the continent, people are preparing for mass actions against fossil fuels between now and May.
