Climate Justice and Energy Sovereignty
Friends of the Earth are campaigning to prevent Climate Change, the biggest threat facing the planet. We demand from governments to implement and enforce strong national emissions reduction programs and targets, and to phase out fossil fuels. The industrial countries must take the lead and bear their share in reducing emissions and support countries and communities that are mostly affected by the catastrophic consequences of climate change.
We are striving for energy sovereignty -the right of people to choose affordable, renewable and sustainable energy sources – through decentralized, democratic and community-based campaigns and projects. We are building a global climate justice movement in solidarity with those who are most severely impacted and through our resistance against those who are responsible for the largest percentage of carbon emissions to the atmosphere.
