Climate Justice Mobilisations on Finance

Climate Justice Mobilisations on Finance


Join us in mobilisations in April to put finance at the centre of the climate story! 

We all want climate action. But to solve the climate crisis that is pushing our planet to the brink, we need to fix the world’s finance flows. 

Far more of the world’s money is still flowing to the causes of the climate crisis, than to the solutions.

Let’s face it – the climate crisis is really about money. Harmful money, helpful money, too much money going to the wrong things, or too little money going to the right things. Money flows connect North and South, harmful corporations and local communities, crises and solutions. 

This is the year that we collectively boost our call to governments and banks to fix the finance flows that are failing the planet. 

On 16-19 April 2024 a global week of Climate Justice Finance Mobilisations will hold governments, UN climate talks, private banks, the IMF, the World Bank, multilateral development banks – those that hold the purse strings – to account.

Join us!

We all know that money talks. This is the year we make sure it listens.

Week of Action (16th-19th April): Organise or join stunts, climate strikes, workshops, actions, demos to send a message that governments and finance institutions are failing the planet and that we need to #FixTheFinance. Don't forget to share photos, videos and messages on social media!

Why are we mobilising?

Banks, multilateral institutions and regional development banks are financing the fossil fuel and harmful industrial agriculture industries that are causing the climate crisis and destroying local communities. Governments are using precious public funds to subsidise destructive international corporations instead of providing real support for community-led climate solutions. Climate disasters and multilateral institutions are pushing countries on the front lines of the climate crisis deeper into debt. Wealthy countries have broken their promises to provide the climate finance necessary to help frontline communities adapt to impacts and transition to greener pathways, and put the planet on a path to safety. Instead, they are offering loans under the banner of climate finance, pushing vulnerable countries deeper into debt traps that lead to destructive fossil fuel expansion. The global financial system is better designed to escalate - rather than address - climate change, inequality and vulnerability.

As organisations that represent and work with youth, women, farmers, indigenous peoples, communities and NGOs we are planning 4 days of actions, stunts, workshops and other activities, culminating on Friday 19th April.

Together we are calling on our governments to use public funds to solve the climate crisis instead of causing it, and for wealthy countries to provide the real climate finance so urgently needed on the front lines so that communities can recover from and adapt to climate impacts and transition to greener futures. We are calling on banks and multilateral institutions to stop financing the fossil fuels and harmful industrial agriculture that are driving the climate crisis and devastating communities and ecosystems. We are calling for the debt cancellation, tax justice and shifting of finance flows needed to properly resource community-led climate solutions and just transitions.
