Why are we sounding the Climate Alarm?

The climate crisis is the greatest threat of our time. We urgently need to change course, and we need to do it now. Do we go on choosing ruined crops, deadly heat waves and water shortages, at home and abroad? Or do we choose now for fertile soil, clean air and enough drinking water?

Let’s use the financial aid that the government is now making available, to make the Netherlands fairer and greener. The government is giving billions of Euros to large polluting companies in the form of subsidies, loans and tax breaks. This is at the expense of families and small businesses. The government can only spend our tax money once. In the current situation our tax money is making the climate crisis worse. This needs to change.

We demand that the government changes course and forces companies to pay for the climate damage they cause themselves, at home and abroad. The government must ensure that companies take responsibility to become more sustainable. At their own expense. We choose people over polluting companies.

We demand real solutions and fair climate policies. For families, farmers, small business owners, for young people, indigenous communities, for you. The elections are on March 17th. On March 14th we’ll make ourselves heard throughout the Netherlands. A fair climate policy doesn’t just happen by itself. Your voice is of vital importance. Tell your friends and family and join the Climate Alarm in your area.

Let’s make ourselves heard for the climate!

Our demands:

  • Polluting companies pay for the pollution they cause
  • Healthy food, warm homes, sustainable travel and green jobs available for everyone
  • People above polluting companies
  • The government has wasted enough time. The climate can’t wait! Change is needed, now. That’s why we will make our voices heard throughout the Netherlands on the Sunday before the elections.

Make it big!
