These are the aims of an organisation called Avaaz according to an email sent out to their supporters:

In the next 2 years, our community has voted to drive forward 3 more game changers -- things we don't need Trump* for:
  • Push 10 major countries and corporations to switch to 100% clean energy.
  • Pass laws in the 5 major car-manufacturing countries requiring all new vehicles to be electric.
  • Eliminate $1 trillion in taxpayer subsidies for big oil and coal, and invest it clean energy.
*Obama couldn't achieve this either.
    I would suggest this is a tiny bit ambitious, going much further than even the UK Climate Change Act. I hear there is a new film out called "La La Land". Maybe this is the sequel!
