At LINGO, we encourage everyone to resist fossil fuel extraction and infrastructure everywhere.
The battle starts in our imaginary. With LINGO Murals you can plant the idea in our minds and hearts that fossil fuels need to stay underground for a safe future.
The next chance for intervention is at exploration. LINGO calls for a Global Moratorium on Exploration.
