By telling the story of ABPfossilvrij, I hope to make people realize that their power as a citizen is much greater than your behavior as a consumer. Civil servants, teachers and young people together have been able to influence the billions of one of the largest pension funds in the world – the ABP. If we work together smartly, have a clear goal in mind and persevere, we can achieve much more than we think.
