In behalf of the Green Party of the Philippines (GPP-KALIKASAN MUNA), I am endorsing this campaign of 350.org to demand accountability from the world Financial Institutions as they meet to discuss COVID recovery and the climate crisis.
Join the 350.Org Campaign
This week, 450 public financial institutions are meeting to discuss COVID recovery and the climate crisis. These institutions control trillions of dollars in public money, and they continue pouring our money into dirty fossil fuel projects.
We have an opportunity to change that. The meeting called “Finance in Common” is happening online. If hundreds of us take over the official summit hashtag with tweets asking for an end to fossil fuel finance, it will affect their public image, their media coverage, and could push them to start seriously acting on the climate crisis.
Click here and pick a public finance institution to tweet at.
If you don’t have a Twitter account, please forward this email to your friends who do.
Last week, the strongest typhoon recorded this year hit the Philippines. The climate crisis is very real, and financial institutions need to immediately stop funding our destruction.
We know from allies that financial institutions are drafting an official statement for the summit – however, the statement currently only states broad principles and no concrete plans.
Let’s take over the summit hashtags with our demands to end fossil fuel financing by 2021 latest, and push institutions to make serious commitments for our climate.
