This week’s strikes bring awareness to the banks and financial companies that are funding the fossil fuel companies and the climate crisis. Recently, protestors from 12 European countries gathered to demand European Investment Bank (EIB) end its financial support of fossil fuel projects. These actions put pressure on financial institutions to choose to protect our planet instead of their shareholders. Furthermore, through our #FinanceClimateStrike this week, we will also call attention to wealth inequality and the devastating effects this has on our climate.
