Bill McKibben is on his way

Dear Friend,

He’s packed his bag.

The guy who’s got the coal industry running scared is 92 hours away from touching down on our shores.

But our vision for next week is not just about Bill McKibben. It’s much bigger than that – imagine packed out theatres at each event, unleashing the energy and excitement to catapult the divestment campaign across Australia, and sending ripples around the world. We want to show that Australia is ready to be the climate solution and not the climate problem.

We feel like we’re really close to enabling that vision, but we need one more push to get there. Will you help us reach that vision by sharing this email with 5 friends and inviting them to an event next week?

Even better, why not suggest they attend one of the after-show receptions where they can chat face to face with Bill! And as you can see on this map, we now have live broadcasts in both Perth and Hobart!

All the details are on

So many thanks for your support so far. And get ready, because we’re in for a heck of a ride!

With excitement,


Aaron, Tim, Blair, Charlie and the whole Australia Team
