ABOUT THE MOVEMENT
Debt For Climate is an international campaign led by people from the Global South that links social justice and climate justice struggles by uniting the labour, social and climate movements of the Global South and the Global North behind a common goal. This goal is to overcome the "diplomacy of the debt trap" by relieving impoverished countries of debt so that they can afford to leave fossil fuels in the ground and finance a just energy transition. The global Debt for Climate initiative has the potential to leave trillions of dollars worth of fossil fuels in the ground while freeing countries from a crushing debt burden that is often used as a tool to extract even more natural resources.
In Switzerland, a group has formed in the summer of 2022 to join the international campaign. The next actions will take place in October!
