Our home is in peril. Each year the earth is getting hotter and the oceans are rising. The carbon pollution driving these changes increases every year. The new president is opposed to fighting climate change. 

One thing is for sure. We can’t just wait anymore for the government to fix our carbon problem, or hope that a technological miracle is going to bail us out. 

It’s on us.

We the people are going to have to save our plant. We have to do it because this planet is the only we have. It’s a matter of survival for ourselves, our children and grandchildren, and every other living thing here with us. 

Gasoline and fossil fuels have been at the root of our civilization’s raging force and its power structure for the past 100 years.

Our dependence on gasoline is powerful.

We are comfortable with the gasoline status quo while willfully ignorant of its impact on our health and environment.

Now, we must, as individuals and as a people, purge gasoline from our lives to assure our survival.

Coltura's Programs

1. Cultural Intervention 

Coltura seeks to change cultural norms about the use of gasoline through mobile and interactive live performance, social media, and powerful imagery and video challenging the cultural status quo.   Coltura makes its own content, and curates content from artists and other creative people.  Our cultural intervention program is inspired by successful efforts to curb youth smoking and on innovative cultural techniques pioneered in Bogota, Colombia.

 2. No Gasoline Planning

Coltura asks people to make a simple plan to purge their use of gasoline.  The plans are entered into Coltura’s database, and Coltura follows up regularly with plan participants.

 3. Organize and Advocate

Coltura is building a broad coalition of people against the use of gasoline.  The coalition includes people affected by air pollution, environmentalists, and others pushing for an end to fossil fuel use.  Coltura also works with local governments to adopt a “no gasoline” goal as part of their long term agenda.  Coltura founded and organizes “No Gasoline Day,” an annual event calling for the end of gasoline usage.  The goal is for No Gasoline Day to become a nationally and internationally promoted event.
