2015

In 2015, in the lead up to the Paris Climate Summit we worked to the just energy transformation at the centre of the public debate.

We did so with three central moments of international coordinated mobilisations including:

  • 7th of June – to call for the ban of new dirty energy projects and all funding of dirty energy by the G7 governments
  • 26th of September – to join the call by our French comrades for an international day of alternatives
  • 9th/10th of October – the Global Day to Reclaim Power against dangerous, harmful and dirty energy systems. 

Reclaim Power partners also mobilised their members and supporters around our demands during the Paris Climate Conference and the global climate marches on the 28th-29th of November and the 12th of December.

Throughout the central momements there were particularly large actions in the Democratic Republic of Colombia, Kenya (by the International Youth Council in actions recognised by the Minister of the Environment), Ghana, Colombia and Costa Rica.
