The people of Japan are not quite ready to take to the picket lines and protest for the climate. Through this video, we aim to spark a conversation about where our money is going and how that flow of funding affects the world around us. While divestment is still to take off in Japan, we made this video with the hope of building our power through educating and mobilizing more people to join our campaign to move our money towards a renewable future.

350 Japan is currently starting up a new campaign to convince Japanese citizens to divest from fossil-fuel and nuclear banks and move their personal savings to nuclear and fossil-free financial institutions through the My Bank My Future Campaign. By promoting personal divestment, we will influence the investment policies of smaller regional banks and credit unions to exclude fossil-fuel and nuclear-related companies and create a larger social dialogue around the responsibility of Japan’s major financial institutions to support the transition toward a renewable-energy society.
