350 Auckland is a local campaign group focused on pressuring institutions to divest from fossil fuels. We use education, civil disobedience, and nonviolent direct action to build the movement for a healthier climate.
We are currently working on two main campaigns:
Clean Up Auckland Council
Clean up Auckland Council is our campaign to make Auckland Council fossil free. Currently, the council has more than $20 million invested in oil companies like Exxon and Anadarko, despite having a Low Carbon Action Plan and being part of the C40 initiative.

It’s Time to Divest
Fossil fuel extraction projects like coal mines and fracking wouldn’t exist without the large sums of money that finance them, and a lot of this money comes from banks. We are focusing on two of the worst offenders: ANZ and Westpac.
People all over New Zealand are pledging to move their money out of ANZ and Westpac if they don’t divest by 25 November, 2016. Organisations are also putting pressure on these banks by participating in the pledge, having conversations with their banks, and making public ultimatums that they plan to move their money by the end of November.
