Come and find out more from activists and insurance insiders. Get your questions answered, and hear the plans for actions 27th-29th Feb in London. We need you, and you can have a massive impact!

In the UK London is where we can make the biggest impact, which is why we need everyone who can to be there from 27th-29th Feb. A major chunk of the global insurance industry is concentrated in the City of London, so here we can potentially make impacts that ripple across the globe!

So if you can join us to maximise pressure at the global heart of the beast - London - please do so, even for a day, and help us get even more carbon bombs cancelled. If you can just come for one day come Wednesday 28th, but to maximise your own impact come from Tuesday to Thursday.

But if you can't get down to London don't despair, there are dozens of actions happening across the country on 1st-2nd March, (and more are being added by the day, so check the map more than once!), and Digital Rebellion has a whole campaign that you can join in from home!

When & Where

Plans are constantly evolving but this is what we know as of Tue 13 Feb:

Messaging pack for IoF

Insurance is the Achilles heel of the global fossil fuel industry. It’s what gives companies such as Shell, BP and Exxonmobil the confidence to drill as the planet burns - by covering their operations against financial losses when things go wrong.

Without insurance, major oil and gas projects would not be able to operate.

Just 20 companies insure 70% of fossil fuel projects and a large number of these companies are based in the UK, mostly in the City of London.
