Beyond Gas Network

What is the Beyond Gas network?

The beyond gas network was started by a group of people with diverse backgrounds (activists, NGOs, scientists etc.) to better coordinate their work to fight fossil gas. After a conference aiming at connecting gas activists in the fall of 2016, the Beyond Gas email list was created and steadily grew until today. A big part of the members of this list are based in Europe, but also many members from all across the planet are active in it.

How can you join?

The network mainly communicates via the “beyond-gas” email list. Activists, campaigners, scientists, NGOs etc. who fight gas are welcome to join our online conversation. You can email hello @ to join the list by shortly introducing yourself. 

What do we do? 

The Beyond Gas email list aims to be a platform to unite people from diverse backgrounds and geographies in the struggle against gas and the reckless practices of corporations and financial institutions supporting it.

This includes fighting new gas infrastructure, contesting injustices linked to gas extraction and the toxic economic implications of it, unmasking false solutions which directly or indirectly support gas use, and informing the public about the climate, environmental and social impacts of gas. 

We strengthen the respective struggles by amplifying each other’s work, exchanging information and planning coordinated actions/working strands.

What can you concretely expect on the email list?

  • Sharing of information and updates
  • Help with questions
  • Facilitation of the formation of working groups/coordinated actions
  • Bimonthly network calls
  • Webinars/virtual conferences
  • Call outs for actions, sign on letters etc.
