Beautiful Lake Malawi supports a huge endemic biodiversity and lots of fisherfolk. We want to keep it that way and stop planned oil exploration in the lake. Our Malawian partners are spearheading efforts to build a united front against oil exploration in Lake Malawi.

Project cost: 7500€

European governments and corporations continue to promote fossil gas as a “climate solution” even though it is now clear that it is worse for the climate than even coal. In order to stop new pipelines and other fossil gas infrastructure from being built – and call attention to the fact that gas is a climate killer, the Gastivists Collective plans to organize a Europe-wide International Day of Action against Fossil Gas in 2018.

Project 3: Climate Litigation in Mexico

Science has established that 90 corporations, the so called Carbon Majors are responsible for two-thirds of human-made CO2 emissions. That global warming results in tangible damage is already clear. What we need in order to shut down the biggest fossil fuel companies are damage lawsuits where companies have to compensate those who suffer the impacts of warming, for example through hurricanes. With a pioneering lawsuit in Mexico we want to establish a precedent which can serve all those who receive climate impacts due to global warming to file their lawsuits and claim compensation, too.
