With states, cities, and citizens willing to double down and move ahead with climate commitments, the global community can still count on many Americans’ willingness to act responsibly in support of global climate actions, even if their White House is not. Unfortunately, such activism will not make up for the failure of the Trump administration to make good on its international climate finance obligation.

by
Instead of changing our economic system to make it fit within the natural limits of the planet, we are redefining nature so that it fits within the economic system.

Coal contributes more to climate change than any other energy source. It is therefore of utmost importance that the world finds ways by which to tame King Coal, especially as international climate negotiations get underway in Paris later this month. The Coal Atlas - a joint publication by the Heinrich Boell Foundation and Friends of the Earth International - highlights new facts and figures on the state of the global coal industry.

Intro

Ecological integrity and the fight against climate change, clean energy solutions, and (gender-)equitable sustainable development approaches are central for securing the future of humanity and the planet. As societies embark worldwide upon the green transformation of business-as-usual economic and development agendas, greater emphasis must be given to social and gender justice, participatory democracy, and citizen involvement. We support sustainable economic development fueled by clean energies, greener infrastructure, and inclusive governance.
