How to get involved in the fight against the gas lock-in

At the local level, you can join one of the many organisations or collectives fighting gas projects. You can find some of them on our network page.

On social media, you can like/follow our Twitter and Facebook, share our posts, and do the same with our allies. The gas industry is trying to persuade people that fossil gas is a clean energy. It’s our responsibility to show the consequences of gas extraction and gas infrastructure on people, on their environment and on the climate.

At the global level, there are many days of action and global mobilisations that you can join! You can find the upcoming activities in the agenda.

Some wider activities and campaigns

Decentralized day of action (Frackdown-Gasdown), 13 October 2018: Coordinated actions at this date or around this date. It’s decentralized! More information to come. It’s in the making.

Campaigning against public funding of major gas projects in Europe: A number of gas projects in Europe will receive public funding. The campaigns therefore focus on the European Banks (EIB, EBRD) and other European institutions, that are about to fund the Trans-Adriatic Pipeline, the Southern Gas Corridor, etc.

Reject the Projects of Common Interest-List: The campaign against the approval of the List of Projects of Common Interest (PCI) is part of the campaigns against public funding of fossil gas projects in Europe.

The Gastivists Collective needs you

If you want to help our collective to grow, you can help very concretely. Here are some ideas.

For example:

  • Can you translate? Awesome! We need people to translate parts of this website. Please get in touch with blabla@gastivists.org
  • Are you a bit artistic (music, image, play, …) and would like to support this struggle with your art? Sweet! You can get in touch with art@gastivists.org if you’d like to share your idea(s) or collaborate with an existing project.
  • Do you have a critical journalist inside of you? Nice! We would love to dig in deeper into various of these stories and get the truth out. Let us know where you’re based and/or where you would like to go, and we’ll see from there ;). Drop a line at hello@gastivists.org.

Nothing for you in there but you still want to help? Cool! Let’s talk!

Either: send us an e-mail presenting yourself, we’d love to hear everything about you! If you have an idea of how you could or would like to help, we’ll be really happy to know: hello@gastivists.org.

Or: come and meet us! In the agenda we try to update our wherabouts at certain events. Get in touch and hopefully see you soon!
