Banks Off Campus
We’re calling out big banks on our college and university campuses, demanding our schools cut ties with fossil fuel financiers and kick #BanksOffCampus. Student groups across 17 Canadian campuses are calling on their student unions to divest from fossil fuel funding banks, refuse sponsorships, and end leases with on-campus branches like RBC’s OnCampus projectLearn More
Young people are a key client base for Canada’s Big 5 Banks. Banks know that the decisions we make about where to bank as young people can last a lifetime. They want us to believe they are socially responsible and environmentally sustainable, but we know they are funding billions of dollars of fossil fuel expansion projects. We refuse to bank with these institutions, until such a time when they make meaningful commitments to climate, Indigenous Sovereignty, and all forms of life, locally, globally, now, and into the future.Learn More
Student and youth organizers have real power. Together we've made a lasting impact on banks brand reputation. In two short years we've grown our movement and drawn the attention of RBC executives. They're scared of us. We will win.
Change Course (previously Banking on a Better Future) is a youth-led nonprofit based in so-called Canada. We support grassroots organizing on campuses and in communities, targeting fossil fuel funding banks, and advocating for climate justice and Indigenous Sovereignty. Together we are demanding an end to all financial support for the fossil fuel industry.Learn More
